Serving the People
Tallahassee has not been working for Floridians. Under Republican control, the Legislature has been run by an unaccountable majority, cutting deals behind closed doors and giving tax-breaks to special interests. Philip thinks it’s time to change that. As Governor, Philip will fight to make sure that the legislature is held accountable for its actions.
To make Tallahassee serve the people best, Philip proposes using the same standards local governments use and ensure any and all visitors speaking with elected leaders must be publicly available information.
Also, because the Governor and the Cabinet have a very real influence on legislation — to avoid even the appearance of impropriety, no statewide elected official should be able to fundraise during legislative session.
