Jeff Fandl - The New Face of Washington Politics
Progressive Democratic Candidate for
US Congress - Florida District 22
Fort Lauderdale, Boca Raton, Parkland, Coral Springs, Coconut Creek, Wilton Manors and more
Do you feel like nothing is changing in Washington and politics are only getting worse? Have you considered that perhaps it's time to elect a candidate who has the successful business leadership skills and experience to drive change in Washington? Jeff Fandl has that experience to lead change and steer a better course for Floridians. When you elect Jeff Fandl to represent Florida's 22nd district, you're electing a thoughtful leader that is very experienced in the Corporate world who has seen and been through many of the challenges that the working Middle Class feel in America today. Jeff Fandl knows what it feels like to see many coworkers and managers let go due to a merger or downturn in the market and realized that the one common theme is that most of them did not have any kind of safety net to protect them. Jeff has even experienced this first hand and knows the pain and frustration the Middle Class workers face when Corporate America impacts their lives. It's time for change, it's time to "Bring back the Middle Class"! Jeff Fandl will be proposing many new benefits and protections to allow the Middle Class workers to not just survive, but to thrive! We are the backbone of this nation and it's time someone in Washington has our backs for a change!
Why should you vote for me?
My agenda is focused on Social & Economic issues that affect the People in our community and around the country. My Top Agenda items will improve the lives of Floridians throughout our state.
I think access to affordable Healthcare as one of the most basic responsibilities for our government to provide to all citizens. I don't believe that because you start your own business, you're a 1099 contract worker or you become unemployed that you should ever have to worry about having the same access to affordable healthcare. Whether you work for a large corporation or a mom and pop shop, your healthcare should cost the same. Healthcare should be affordable without huge deductibles or excessive costs that force you into financial ruin or bankruptcy. Imagine if you lost your job and your car insurance was immediately canceled, how crazy would that be? Why should your health insurance be any different?
Imagine an environment where everyone who is working gets at least a living wage, not the minimum wage that keeps people in poverty. What if unemployment assistance actually helped the middle class too? I don't like that so many people are just one corporate merger, one bad boss, or one family illness away from losing their job with no safety net to protect them. The middle class contributes the most to our economy yet we do nothing to insure they survive a loss. I envision a job market where every worker, full-time or part-time has a number of sick days available, access to healthcare, a living wage and unemployment protections that help the middle class too, unlike Florida's abysmal $275/week maximum benefit for the unemployed.
When I send my son off to school in the morning, I expect to see him when I come home at night in one piece, not full of bullet holes. When he goes to the movies with his friends, he should not have to dodge bullets flying in a theater or in the mall. I don't want to read on the news that another 18 year old with emotional issues legally bought a high powered rifle without a background check and shot into groups of people killing them, again. We've got a huge gun problem in our country and we need to do a lot more to solve this.
When I cast my ballot to elect someone in office to represent me, I want my vote to count but I know that because of gerrymandering, the odds are stacked against me. I see it's too easy for today's politicians to be bought by big corporations thanks in part to Citizens United which takes the voice of the people out of decisions that affect all Floridians. The current political Party uses powerful software to gerrymander districts to their advantage so they can unfairly win elections. I'd like to use that powerful software to generate fair, non-partisan districts to stop the politicians from robbing people of their votes.
