As a faith-based family man, I am committed to working hard to honor the Christian values that are the foundation of our faith and families in my service on behalf of Northwest Florida.
My service to the citizens of Northwest Florida has always been strongly rooted in the values and principles of my Christian upbringing and faith. My personal relationship with God is the most important relationship in my life, and I rely on it in all aspects of my life, including representing my constituents, raising my children and running my business.
The legislative accomplishment of which I remain the most proud to this day was my 2005 sponsorship of a bill making "In God We Trust" the official motto of the State of Florida. The legislation was brought to me by two fourth-grade boys who had learned in their social studies class that Florida did not have a state motto and who shared my fundamental belief that our faith and trust in our God was essential to our continued success as a state.
My legislative record demonstrates my commitment to pro-family, pro-life and pro-faith legislation; and I am committed to continuing that record in future legislative service.
As long as I have the honor and duty of representing the citizens of Northwest Florida, I will do so with a deeply-rooted faith in God. I am very grateful to God and my fellow Northwest Floridians for the opportunity of service that has been given to me and will continue to honor and bring respect to the trust that has been placed in me.
