Since filing, people have asked me how I can be a true conservative but still care about affordable housing, environmental/water quality and wages. Governor DeSantis is most definitely a conservative. However, he also understands that common sense and concern about the State are necessary to the overall well-being of every citizen. He is pushing for a full-funding of the Sadowski Fund for affordable housing for the second straight year. He's focusing attention on water quality and increasing fines for utilities that pollute our waterways. He's pushing for more vocational training and higher teacher pay. Governor DeSantis proves that you can be fiscally responsible, a good steward of conservative values and still be compassionate to people's needs. I will staunchly stand behind this philosophy all day.
