Candidate Name: Michael Cardona
What office are you running for?
Florida State Representative, District 48
With which party are you running for office?
November 3rd, 2020
Why are you running for office?
I’m running because not enough is being done in my district to fight the affordable housing crisis and not enough is being done to raise wages to a living wage.
What is the biggest issue facing your community and how do you propose helping?
Central Florida has one of the worst affordable housing crisis’ in the country, it is completely unaffordable! Wages do not match the cost of living. My plan is to bring down the cost of living by fighting in Tallahassee to use more of the Florida Housing Trust Fund. At this time it is not being used at all. I also plan to fight to raise the minimum wage that currently sits at $8.46 hr.
Who is your hero?
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Seeing someone from the same city and background as me, raised under the same circumstances make it to congress was eye opening!
What is the most recent book you read?
“Origin” by Dan Brown
