...but you haven't held a political office before

Exactly.  That's what makes Jeff a better candidate than people you may have previously voted for.   Jeff Fandl knows how the real corporate world works and the challenges that so many Americans for in working for corporate America.  You cannot afford to elect another career politician who doesn't have this strong experience.  Jeff does not bring the political baggage like current politicians in office, he brings new, fresh ideas.

Are you going to Impeach Trump if you're elected?

I'm going to bet that if we see the full Mueller report in front of Congress, Trump will be impeached and or Indicted long before my election for 2020.  I think Trump's actions along with his co-conspirators have failed the American People as a whole, including his own supporters who he convinced he was helping.  I think the question we should be asking is why haven't the Republicans done their job and started impeachment proceedings against Trump?  I do not believe it is very Presidential for Trump to put his own personal gains above the Country.  Didn't he take an oath to protect the Country first?

What do you think about Single Payer healthcare?

Conceptually it sounds great but capitalism has allowed America's healthcare system to become a playground for corporate greed.  Trying to abruptly shift to a single payer model for healthcare would decimate our economy and take us right into a recession.  My plan takes a hybrid approach which prevents the huge job losses that would occur with a sudden Single payer system and allows America to bring health care costs under better control by taking it in phases.  Each phase has a major stepping stone to balance the needs of businesses involved in healthcare/insurance, employees involved in those businesses and the American people.  Every phase has a target to get us to the end game which will become Single-payer.

What do you think about the #NeverAgain movement or #MSDstrong movement?

Jeff considered sending his son to MSD in 2017 but decided to keep him at Monarch High instead.  Living within 10 minutes of MSD, the massacre that took place really hit home for Jeff.  Growing up in PA, Jeff has shot several guns/rifles at targets (non-living) but knows enough that guns are used for killing, that is their primary purpose.  While Jeff doesn't agree with many pro-gun supporters about the reasons to have guns, Jeff knows they're not going away anytime soon in America so we need to take smarter action to prevent these killing machines to be accessible by people with depression and other mental illnesses.   Background checks are a non-negotiable item in Jeff's book, any gun owner must go through a mental health evaluation before being allowed to own a gun.  Jeff is proud to stand by his son who participated in the school walkouts and walked to MSD during the first march with a "I am a Student, not a target shirt".  Jeff is also proud of Runcey's position on the young adults supporting fellow students.

Will you take any money from the NRA?

Do you support the LGBT community?

Absolutely. Their rights should be no different than yours or mine.  I will fight strongly against the people who want to discriminate against others that are different than they are.

How do you feel about Climate Change?

Jeff is proud to be endorsed by the Democratic Environmental Caucus of Florida.  Jeff believes that the Federal government has a responsibility to the American people to bring Science back to Washington to acknowledge the reality of Climate change and how it is affecting our environment.  It does not end in the US as there are issues throughout the world that affect our climate which require us to work as a global team towards minimizing the impact of this huge issue. With Florida's 1,350 miles of coastline, we cannot afford to postpone action on this serious threat to our environment as well as our economy.
