A Vote for George is a Vote Against Sanctuary Cities!

George Collins strongly believes that the security of Floridians is at risk in the Sanctuary city and county environment. “I insist on strict enforcement of crimes committed by illegal immigrants in order for Floridians to lead safe and secure lives.

There is too much standardized testing that is impairing classroom learning. I constantly listen to teachers, school administrators, student, and parents.

Transportation

Our Florida roads are near capacity and require better long-term planning. Mass transportation is another way to assist in easing road traffic congestion. I have surveyed District 50 residents who complain about traffic congestion, and numerous fatal accidents. I will continue to review all modes of Mass-Transportation for cost effectiveness and safety in Florida. I recently enjoyed meeting the Port Director and CEO and hearing his vision on the future of the Port. The plans for the Port will have a positive impact on the Central Florida Economy. The new Logistics Center in Titusville will also benefits Brevard County for future jobs and business growth.

I participated in the recent annual car show at Temple Baptist Church in Titusville that supports homeless Veterans. And I’m concerned about the limited counseling provided to our returning brave Veterans.” George was honored to receive the Counseling to Careers for Veterans Certificate George is the only FL House 50 candidate who served in the Armed Forces.
