WHO I AM

“My family and I have lived in Southwest Florida since 2012. For my entire life I have been a strong conservative fighter who thinks it’s time that our politicians finally do what is needed: Back parental rights, end illegal immigration, pass constitutional carry, rein in big tech censorship, call for a forensic audit of the election, achieve U.S. energy independence, end our dependence on China, stop mandates, destroy the woke agenda, and actually back Our Governor.  When you think of me, think Freedom and Fortitude. I will fight for you every day.”

-Ford                      

MY VALUES

Illegal Immigration

We MUST protect our nation’s sovereignty, secure America’s borders, build the wall on the southern border, close the asylum and immigration loopholes to end chain migration, end sanctuary cities, and require employers to use E-Verify.

Parental Rights/CRT

Parents know what is best for their children. I will fight the woke agenda and mask mandates in the classroom. Our kids should be in school to learn free from a political agenda. Schools should teach about the way our country was founded on a noble vision of freedom and equality by our Founding Fathers, rather than about Critical Race Theory (CRT).

Henry Salvatori (Ford's Grandfather) served in Ronald Reagan's "Kitchen Cabinet"

Economy/Balanced Budget

Inflation, rent, housing, and gas prices are out of control. The key to Southwest Florida’s economic success and quality of life has been low taxes and minimal regulations including prohibiting overreaching COVID mandates. I will fight to block any new taxes and to keep the federal government out of our backyard. You know how to spend your money better than politicians do.
We balance our checkbooks every month and so should politicians. Endless debt is a threat to our national security, and I will fight wasteful spending.

Rein In Big Tech Censorship

Florida must do more to rein in Big Tech censorship. The restrictions by technology platforms on free speech are a threat to the open exchange of ideas and to our democracy. Tech companies should clearly explain their moderation policies and be held accountable for their biased mistakes.
