"I think of everyone in Congressional district 3 as a part of my family, I hold each and every one of my constituents close to my heart. After a year of traveling the district from Jacksonville to Gainesville to Palatka and Orlando, I decided it was time to fix the problems that have plagued our communities for nearly two decades. High crime, high unemployment, high drop out rate, businesses continually closing and the highest poverty rate in the state." "After a lot of thinking, I came up with a plan to drastically turn this district around in my first 2 years in Washington. My 25-25-25 3rd District turn around plan will do just that, drastically improve the lives of all members of this Congressional District by accomplishing the following: ¦25% reduction in unemployment and business closures: We will accomplish this by creating enterprise zones in areas throughout the district to drive new businesses to North/Central Florida. ¦25% reduction in high school drop-outs: We will accomplish this through mentoring programs by bringing local business and political leaders into our high schools to help these kids out. ¦25% reduction in crime: More jobs and fewer high school drop outs will lower the crime rate as many crimes are committed out of desperation, not with malice."
