Catherine Price here. I am running for FL Senate District 26 in a conservative, agricultural district in the heartland of Florida. I am an RN, healthcare administrator that has spent 20 years advocating for healthcare services for the working poor of Polk County, FL. I am running in this conservative Florida Senate district because there are serious needs in my community that are not being met with regards to the economy (i.e. jobs), education (Florida ranks consistently low in per capita student funding), healthcare (many are uninsured and underinsured and middle class people are struggling) and the environment. Florida is the state in the U.S. that is most at risk from climate change and our current Governor Scott will not let state employees use the term. This district encompasses some of the most important fresh water resources in Florida and these resources have been over promised for future development. We need leaders that will protect our drinking water. We need honest, compassionate leaders that are looking to the future and not lining their pockets as fast as they can today. For the Future of our Children; For the Future of our Grandchildren; For the Future of Florida — Let’s put the Sun back in the Sunshine State.
