Great Public Schools Equal Brighter Futures for Our Children.
I attended public schools growing up and graduated from Gainesville High School. It was that strong foundation that allowed me to get my M.D. from the University of Florida and have a successful career as a longtime UF Health physician.
Unfortunately, years of Republican neglect and cuts have taken their toll.
Our teachers are underpaid and our public schools are underfunded and overcrowded. Keith Perry made the situation worse by supporting HB7069 that siphons hundreds of millions of your tax dollars to for-profit corporations at the expense of the 2.7 million children in our public schools.
Join me and together we can put public schools first again by fully funding K-12 and PreK and giving teachers the pay raise the deserve.”
