Thank you for your interest in our campaign for Florida's new 8th Congressional District, where I look forward to serving you as your next representative in the U.S. House of Representatives.

As you may know, the new 8th Congressional District includes Brevard and Indian River Counties, and some of east Orange County. We are a diverse and rich District, considering our people, businesses, and natural resources.

Our challenges and opportunities are great.

The jobless rate is close to 12%, our residents are losing their homes, and our beautiful natural resources are being threatened.

We need a Congressional Representative in Washington, D.C., who has proven national and local leadership experience, who can work with our President and our new Governor to bring seriously needed Federal resources to our State and our community to:
Expand and bring in new businesses and jobs
Keep our Space Program #1 in the World
Provide health care to those in need
Provide improved roads and new transportation systems
Protect our natural resources
Elevate our research and education to the best in the Nation
Provide a strong national defense and homeland security
Considering our world class workforce, our world technological leadership, the creative resourcefulness of our residents and our businesses, and our unique world location in one of the best places to live on Earth, we have incredible opportunities to bring new jobs to our area in:
Aerospace and Aviation
Clean Energy
Entertainment and Tourism
Health Care
Homeland Security
New Technologies
Research and Development
Given my executive leadership experience with NASA, the U.S. Department of Justice, the U.S. Department of Transportation, and the President's Council on Management Improvement (which crossed the spectrum of 23 Federal Departments and agencies), complemented by my local and regional experience here in Florida and our District, I believe I am uniquely qualified to offer you the aggressive and progressive leadership we need to move this District forward.
Thank you again for your interest in our campaign. I look forward to hearing from you with your suggestions on how we can better lead and serve you and the District as we plan for our most promising future.
Best regards,

Democratic Candidate for Congress
