My name is Steven Specht, and I’m running for Florida’s First Congressional District. I want to lead through intelligent dialogue and ideas, not partisan rhetoric and brinkmanship. The country I love is intensely divided. Our starting point should be as Americans, not as members of any political party. We need to stop the bickering and fix the dysfunction in federal government that threatens to compromise our national security, endangers our public infrastructure, and has added trillions to an overflowing national debt. I pledge to place the people of the First Congressional District above personal gain and to represent their interests in Washington DC.
