Charlie Crist: A Candidate Millennials Can Support
The moment has come for Millennials to rally behind Charlie Crist. One thing is for sure – Millennials are tired of Rick Scott’s far right policies and are seeking to free Florida of Rick Scott.
Florida Millennials are looking for a candidate who can understand them and is willing fight for what they believe. Charlie Crist is that candidate and Millennials should rally behind him.
Why should Millennials vote for Charlie Crist? Let’s take a look at his stance on the issues.
First, Crist understands the importance of education and has spoken against Rick Scott’s devastating budget cuts. These budget cuts have only hurt Florida’s students and the state’s education system.
Crist has made it clear that if he were elected Governor he would fully repeal Rick Scott’s cuts to education. Just as important, he would make sure that Florida’s companies receive tax incentives for partnering with or donating to educational initiatives.
Charlie Chris has also stated that if elected he would make college affordable for all Florida students. Let’s not forget Crist would work hard to increase state funding for colleges and Universities – something that Millennials support.
As Millennials we all know how hard it’s been for many to find work right after they graduate college. Because Millennials have gone through a lot these past years, they are seeking someone that can understand the needs of a Millennial and this includes jobs.
Unlike Rick Scott, Charlie Crist would put people first – this means using incentives to help small businesses grow and ultimately create jobs for Millennials.
Because job creation is key for Millennials to prosper, Crist would also invest in programs like “Visit Florida,” as he has mentioned many times. Programs like this would encourage people from around the world to visit Florida, thus creating jobs for the people of Florida and Millennials alike.
One thing you can bet on is that Millennials care about the environment. In fact we are passionate about it. We understand the importance and urgency of protecting the environment. This is why Charlie Crist has promised to protect the Florida Everglades and beaches and ensure every Floridian has clean water and clean air.
Just as important, Crist has made it clear that he will never support near-shore drilling for oil off the coasts of Florida – something Millennials applaud and support.
These are just a few examples of Charlie Crist policies that can become a reality if he is elected Governor. As a Millennial I feel Crist is a perfect candidate for Florida’s Millennials to support and if you want a candidate that understands your needs and is willing to fight for you then Charlie Crist is the guy to vote for. Crist will improve the overall condition of Florida for everyone.
In the end, no matter who you vote for the important thing is that you participate in our democratic system. We encourage all Millennials – no matter Republican or Democrat – to register to vote and of course to vote during election days.
