David’s Plan

PROTECTING OUR HEALTHCARE

We need access to better and more affordable healthcare. In the Florida Senate, David will fight to bring the cost of health insurance under control and to expand Medicaid to ensure better care for everyone in our community.

STRENGTHENING OUR PUBLIC SCHOOLS

As the PTA president of North Hialeah Elementary, David understands the importance of ensuring every child in Florida has access to a quality public education. Raising teacher pay, fully funding our education system, and keeping guns out of schools will be among his top priorities in the Senate. David will stand firm for traditional public schools, fighting against all attempts to shift public funds to for-profit charter schools.

WELCOMING IMMIGRANTS

As a first generation immigrant, David recognizes that diversity is a part of what makes South Florida such a special place to live and work. In the Florida Senate, he’ll foster a more inclusive environment for everyone in our community. Right here in Miami-Dade, a federal detention center is incarcerating children who have been separated from their families for months — with no end in sight and multiple allegations of sexual abuse. David will fight against this and any other attempts by the Trump administration to rip apart immigrant families in our state.

KEEPING GUNS OFF OUR STREETS

David will stand up to the NRA and fight for common sense gun safety measures, including universal background checks, a ban on military-style assault rifles, and closing the gun show loophole.

STANDING UP FOR SENIORS

David believes it is our duty as a society to take care of our senior citizens. In the Senate, he will stand up to abuse at assisted living facilities and nursing homes. He’ll work with state agencies to prosecute scammers targeting seniors. Finally, he will advocate for programs allowing seniors to “age in place,” surrounded by family from the comfort of their own homes.

TAKING ACTION ON CLIMATE CHANGE

South Florida is the ground zero for sea level rise and the effects of a warming planet. In the Senate, David will be a strong advocate for policies that promote resilience, sustainability and the protection of Florida’s natural resources for future generations.
