Members of Congress are sent to Washington to serve the people they represent, not their own interests. As President Donald J. Trump said in his Inaugural Address, this past election demonstrated that power must be restored to the people instead of Washington elites. Know that as your representative I will remain focused on serving the people of Florida’s 4th District above all else, and I hope and expect the people will hold me accountable.
