One of the best things about representing Central Florida is the opportunities I get to learn about the amazing, innovative things people in our area are doing. I just toured Costa Farms, Gapway Groves, Agri-Starts, and the University of Florida IFAS Citrus Research and Education Center. The first two have a lot of hard-working growers, and the last two have brilliant scientists. Together, they’re helping feed the country and beautify our gardens.
Issues:

Agriculture

Agriculture is an integral part of Central Florida’s thriving economy.  With hard-working farmers, fertile land, a lush climate, and a year-round growing season, we help feed our country and the world.

Economy

Darren believes the biggest issue facing our District and our Nation is the need for higher paying jobs.  To meet these needs, Darren is working to foster strong long-term job growth by boosting existing high tech sectors in and around our District and supporting the robust tourism and agricultural industries which make up the foundation of our economy.

Energy & Environment

Darren is committed to expanding our energy mix by incentivizing renewable energy such as solar, wind, biofuels, and hydropower.  Hailing from the Sunshine State, he understands the importance of solar, in particular, to assist with peak generation demands in the middle of an average Florida day when the sun is shining and the air conditioners are running.

Health

Darren will fight to protect Medicare, Social Security and Medicaid for our seniors and our persons with disabilities to safeguard healthcare and financial security for the most vulnerable among us.  Our seniors have paid into these programs their entire lives and have earned these benefits.  Our disabled and their families need our help to give them a reasonable quality of life.

Veterans

All Americans know that freedom isn't free. Our active military, veterans and their families give more than most and some give their lives to protect America and our way of life.  Darren works closely with, and employs, veterans.  He appreciates the sacrifices they make for all of us, and respects the sacred obligation our government has to serve those who have served us.
