Issues

Grow The Economy And Create Jobs

Businesses and entrepreneurs create jobs – not the government. John is a free-market conservative who is determined to reduce unnecessary government regulations and get the government out of the way of the private sector. John supports rebuilding our manufacturing capacity so that we don’t have to rely on foreign goods and services to fuel our growth. John also opposes the disastrous Obama trade deals that have harmed American workers by shipping jobs overseas.

Repeal Obamacare

John is staunchly against the federal government’s overreach in our health sector and will vote to repeal Obamacare. Obamacare is too big, too complex, too burdensome for small businesses, and kills too many jobs. John approves of a market-based alternative that will ensure more desirable outcomes for Americans.

Serve Our Veterans and Rebuild Our Military

Our military is at its smallest level since World War II and we must return to a peace through strength military. Our brave men and women in uniform deserve the care and respect they have earned. Unfortunately, the Department of Veterans Affairs is a national embarrassment and has failed those who have served us. The son of a WWII and Korean War veteran, John will reform the VA and do everything in his power to serve our veterans while rebuilding our military to confront the threats we face.

Keep Our Community Safe

As a former Sheriff, John is uniquely qualified to address our crime problems and work to address the threat of terrorism. John will fight to give law enforcement all of the tools and resources needed to prevent crime, improve community relationships, and keep our streets safe.

Defend Our Second Amendment And Constitutional Rights

John is a Constitutional Conservative and staunch defender of our Constitutional Liberties, especially our Second Amendment Rights. John will work hard to make sure that law-abiding citizens have the right to keep and bear arms for self-defense, recreational shooting, hunting and other lawful purposes.  As our future voice in Washington, John will strengthen our constitutional freedoms and fight against executive overreach.

As your Congressman, John will:

  • Support the fundamental, individual right to own a firearm.
  • Support Concealed Carry Reciprocity.
  • Support Open Carry by law-abiding citizens.
  • Protect Florida’s hunting and shooting heritage.
  • Oppose a ban on semi-automatic firearms, magazines and ammunition.
  • Oppose a “Universal” Background Check system.
  • Oppose a National Firearm Registry.

Improve Mental Health Treatment

For too long, Americans with mental illnesses have been underserved. That must change. As Sheriff, John worked with our state’s leaders to curb recidivism rates of the mentally ill and provide them with necessary treatment options. In Washington, John will fight to do the same.

Stop Illegal Immigration

First and foremost, John believes the wall along our southern border must be strengthened. America is a nation of laws, and our laws must be enforced. Fighting illegal immigration is not just a law enforcement issue, it’s an economic issue. As a law-and-order Republican, John opposes illegal immigration and executive amnesty.

Protect Life

All life is sacred, period. John is a strong defender of the lives of the unborn and will fight passionately in Washington to protect life.

Cut Taxes

Hard-working Floridians should keep their hard-earned money. John will keep the government off our backs, out of our wallets, and out of our way. After all, we can spend our own money better than the government can.

Fight The Federal Government’s Overreach

The federal government does too much and accomplishes too little. The Obama Administration has unconstitutionally overreached into our education, immigration, and healthcare systems. John will fight for local control and hand power back to our community.
