Issues

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.

Immigration

Immigration advocates meet with Congressman Soto in Kissimmee.

 

The United States is a nation of immigrants and a nation of laws.  Our immigrants are working; our laws are not.  Darren is working to fix them. 

Transportation & Infrastructure

Darren will continue his longtime advocacy for greater infrastructure investment in our District.  

First and foremost, he is engaging in critical oversight to help keep the I-4 Ultimate improvements on budget and on time, with an expected completion date of 2022.  An expansion of Central Florida's main highway is long overdue and is critical to our future growth.

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.
