Fund equal access to justice

It is a sad fact that our justice system is accessible primarily by those with enough money to endure the process. Merits, not money, should be the deciding factor when it comes to justice.

I hope that those casting their votes in the November election consider these issues in your decision. Candidates who are willing to address real issues like these deserve your consideration. Candidates who seek to divide us by parroting negative sound-bites and personal attacks do not.

We need to find ways to provide meaningful access to justice to all Floridians. Your vote can make a difference.
