Rachel's Platform

Affordable Housing

A stable home is the foundation of thriving communities, and I am dedicated to ensuring affordable housing is a reality for every resident in our district. Access to safe and affordable homes is a fundamental right that contributes to the well-being and economic prosperity of our community.

I firmly believe in local autonomy, opposing preemption by the state legislature of our local housing laws and policies. Local communities understand their unique needs and empowering them to make decisions regarding affordable housing initiatives is crucial. By supporting policies that prioritize affordable housing, fostering partnerships with local stakeholders, and resisting state-level interference, I am committed to addressing the pressing issue of housing affordability. 

Healthcare Access for All 

I am committed to championing policies that restore reproductive rights and uphold women's autonomy in making their own medical choices. I will advocate for accessible preventive care, comprehensive mental health services, and affordable prescription medications

I firmly believe that a healthy community is a thriving community, and taking advantage of available resources is key to achieving this vision.


Florida's diverse ecosystems, from pristine coastlines to lush wetlands, deserve and demand our protection. I will advocate for policies that prioritize responsible development, sustainable practices, and the preservation of our unique wildlife habitats. By investing in renewable energy initiatives and championing conservation efforts, we can strike a balance between progress and environmental responsibility. Clean air and water are not luxuries; they are basic human rights. I will tirelessly work to ensure that our communities have access to clean, safe resources, free from pollution and contamination.

Firearm Safety

I am committed to fostering a safer Florida by advocating for responsible firearm ownership and comprehensive firearm safety measures. It's essential that we prioritize the well-being of our communities and work towards a balanced approach that respects the rights of responsible gun owners while ensuring the safety of our residents. By supporting common-sense policies, promoting education on responsible firearm practices, and collaborating with experts and community members alike, I aim to contribute to a Florida where every citizen feels secure while upholding their rights.


Education is the bedrock of our society, and as your representative, I am unwavering in my commitment to ensuring every student in our community has access to a top-tier education. From early childhood development to higher education, I believe in investing in our schools, supporting our dedicated educators, and providing resources that empower students to reach their full potential.

In advocating for education, I stand firmly against book banning, promoting an environment where the free flow of information is celebrated. Encouraging open dialogue and diverse perspectives not only enriches the educational experience but is necessary to cultivate critical thinking skills vital for an informed citizenry. Together, let's build a brighter future by championing education excellence and fostering an atmosphere that embraces the free exchange of ideas.

Defending Voting Rights and Fair Representation

The foundation of a thriving democracy lies in the strength of our voting rights and the fairness of our representation. I am committed to safeguarding the fundamental right to vote for every citizen in our community. Our electoral districts should be drawn fairly and transparently, ensuring that every voice is heard and every vote matters. By advocating for unbiased redistricting and promoting policies that protect voting rights, I am dedicated to fostering a democracy that truly reflects the will of the people.

Let us work together to defend the essence of democracy — accessible, fair, and representative elections that empower our community and strengthen the very fabric of our nation.

Championing Equality for All: Defending LGBTQ+ Rights and Dignity

I stand committed to fighting for equal rights, fair treatment, and full acceptance of the LGBTQ+ community. No one should face discrimination or prejudice based on who they are or who they love. As your representative, I will further policies that ensure inclusivity, diversity, and protection against all forms of discrimination. Together, let's create a community where everyone, regardless of their identity, can live authentically and with the dignity and respect they deserve.

In defending the rights of the LGBTQ+ community, we are not only promoting justice but also shaping a society that values the richness that comes from honoring every individual, irrespective of background or identity.
