Annette is a teacher and community organizer running to be State Representative in her community of District 110 because she is a leader who lives it — who knows what it's like to fight hard every day to make a better life for ourselves and our families. As a first-generation Cuban-American, Annette knows the sacrifices communities like hers have made and continue to make to improve their lives and their communities. She knows what's at stake, and she is ready to defend our values in Tallahassee. Annette will fight to reduce the power of mine blasting companies; address traffic, toll, and transit issues; protect our water quality; increase school funding, accountability and equity, and critical-thinking curricula; expand Medicaid coverage and mental health resources; and improve our economy by strengthening our safety net and raising minimum wage with supports for small businesses.
Annette knows that we work hard every day, and our government must do the same. With a review of our state budget and prioritizing allocations, we can make an impact in Floridians’ lives without placing the tax burden on those least able to bear it. Annette is a candidate who will serve with integrity, insight, and passion.
