Richard DeNapoli, District 74
BY | SRQ DAILY SATURDAY PERSPECTIVES EDITION | SATURDAY AUG 16, 2014
Having been adopted and raised by my maternal grandparents and caring for them through the last stages of their life has afforded me a perspective and opportunity to want to give back to my community and promote conservative Republican ideals. I believe in lowering taxes and a smaller government, which will lead to economic prosperity and more high quality and higher paying jobs for Floridians. Using my training as a Certified Financial Planner, I want to seek out and eliminate wasteful government spending, protect law abiding and legal residents from tax payer-funded giveaways to illegal aliens and safeguard the promises given to our seniors by former elected officials. As a Certified Financial Planner Professional and successful businessman, I know how to balance a budget and help families and seniors plan for the future. Also, as a former Florida Real Estate Commissioner for the last six years, I worked to reduce excessive government regulations, while still protecting the public from unscrupulous individuals. I also served as a local Republican Party County Chairman where I grew up and fought for conservative values for the last 15 years. I’ve been knocking on thousands of voters’ doors throughout South Sarasota County for almost a year now and understand the issues that are important to you. My experience in these areas sets me apart and makes me uniquely qualified to help grow Florida’s economy and build a bright future for our children and grandchildren.
