Born and raised in St. Petersburg with my seven siblings by our single divorced mother,   I learned early on the value of hard work, teamwork, and perseverance.

Married to my soulmate Melissa Newton for 26 years. We have 4 children and 6 grandchildren. 

I was elected to St. Petersburg City Council in 2007 and re-elected to a 2nd term in 2011.   After 8 years of governance, I was Term Limited on January 2nd 2016.

August 30th Primary Election Victory in House District 70 with 64% of the VOTE, The Voters Know Me.


I’m running for Florida House because I want to continue being a champion on issues of importance for the people in District 70.

Real leadership is about self-sacrifice, commitment and truly caring about people.

I wants to serve as your voice in Tallahassee.  A voice that echoes your concerns.      A voice that matters. A voice that cares.

One could describe my time on the Council as a consensus builder.  I am “Ready Now” to put my experience to work in the State Legislature.

You can count on me to give everyone fair consideration of requests once elected.

I feel now is the time for good people to set up for our state’s future. 

It would be an honor and a privilege to serve you in Tallahassee.
