Protecting Our Children
Your safety and that of your family is critically important to me. As a father of two young children, I am horrified by the frequent stories of children being preyed upon by sexual predators.
- I have created a Child Safety Zone Ordinance that prevents sexual predators from coming within 300 feet of places where children congregate, such as schools, parks, and libraries.
- I have actively sponsored and promoted CyberSafe, an internet safety education program, and ensured its use in Hillsborough County’s libraries, parks and school system.
- I have prioritized local youth athletics to ensure that our children have safe, well-maintained and equipped parks and recreation areas in or very near their neighborhoods.
“With two small children, an extremely high priority of mine has and always will be, protecting our children.”
