CLEAN WATER, OUR CHILDREN’S FUTURE

Tom will fight at the federal level to ensure that residents of our federal district have clean air and water. District 3 includes Union, Bradford, Clay, Putnam, Marion, and Alachua counties. Clean water should not be a scarce resource owned by corporations or ruined by politicians. It is the birthright of every citizen in North Central Florida.

We must prevent fracking and irresponsible phosphate mining on Florida’s precious land. There are safer and cleaner ways to create energy and agricultural products.

Climate change is a grave threat to our security, economy, and our future. What we do today will impact the future of our kids and our grandkids.  Tom support HR 3671 Off Fossil Fuels for a Better Future Act.

Tom will fight for clean air and water so that future generations can enjoy Florida’s natural resources. We can no longer be polite and say “It’s time to change” our policies on these issues. Our time is up. Change is long past due. Tallahassee may not be committed to our children’s future, but as your US Congressman I will be.

Clean Air & Water:

HEALTH CARE FOR ALL AMERICANS

Everyone from babies to seniors must have access to a primary care doctor, routine tests to prevent serious illnesses, and life-lengthening curative measures.

Tom believes the long-term solution to America’s healthcare crisis is a single-payer national healthcare program. The success of Medicare is a fine example. It’s open to all Americans over 65 years of age and has been a resounding success since its introduction 50 years ago.

Tom supports HR 676, Medicare for All.

LIVING WAGES FOR WORKING AMERICANS

Jobs should provide a living, not a struggle in poverty. Over the past 40 years, the U.S. economy has not been working for most working people. As productivity has risen, the cost of living has goneup too, but median wages have fallen relative to inflation. Not only are people’s jobs under threat of being sent overseas, but American workers are now forced to work two or three jobs just to make ends meet. 66.5 percent of women and 85.8 percent of men are working more than 40 hours a week, many without paid vacation or paid sick leave.

Tom believes raising the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour is a good start.  He also believes that if the majority of workers decide to form a union at their workplace, they should be able to do so.

Tom believes in family values and to him that means giving workers the time and resources to spend meaningful time with their loved ones, as well as take care of those people and themselves when they are sick.
