"I come from a proud family that has been involved with our community for as long as I can remember. I've built a successful business and raised a wonderful family now I want to work for you. Together we need to create more living wage jobs, improve our schools, and address public safety - especially getting guns off the streets is a top priority. I know what it takes to find solutions to difficult problems, navigate our complicated governmental agencies, and get things done."
LIST OF SOME OF KHALID'S TOP ISSUES
End Human Trafficking
Khalid wants to go to Washington DC to end human trafficking by giving victims and law enforcement the legislation and resources to win this battle against human exploitation.
Human trafficking is the 3rd largest crime industry in the world. Out of the 50 states, Florida ranks 3rd in rate of human trafficking. Orlando is ranked in the top 10 cities for this heinous crime.
Reduce Gun Violence
Gun policies are among the most contentious discussions in the United States. Acts of gun violence, predominantly mass shootings of defenseless innocents, shake us to our core. We can do something about this and still respect our second amendment rights.
The answer is stricter eligibility requirements for age and mental health, more thorough background checks, longer waiting periods, fewer authorized sellers, strict liability for gun manufacturers, and bans on various firearms and firearm accessories.
Khalid understands the economy, knowing that this isn’t a long-term problem facing our nation. Khalid needs your vote so he can help keep our majority in the House so that he can help President Biden with his top economic priority of fighting inflation. They both understand people are anxious, and they’re anxious with good reason. We all have people we love and see them struggling with these price increases. As a business owner Khalid understand how we can bring inflation under control and will always vote for the people's needs not the powerful.
Safeguard the Environment
Khalid wants to address climate change because it’s a global emergency. We have no time to waste in taking action to protect future generations. Our nation has seen record-breaking storms, devastating wildfires, and historic flooding. rural and urban communities alike have suffered tens of billions of dollars in economic losses. Crops have been lost to flooding. Our Florida coastal communities are facing an existential crisis because of sea level rise and stronger storms. Thousands of Americans have died. We must send 29 defenders of the environment an Khalid will protect Florida and our national parks.
Everglades National Park is the largest subtropical wilderness in the United States.
Alafia River State Park is a reclaimed phosphate mine with some of the most radical elevation changes in Florida.
Dry Tortugas National Park is a 100-square mile park mostly made up of open water with seven small islands and only accessible by boat or seaplane.
Provide First-Rate Constituent Services
Khalid has his business and maintains a home here in Orlando, because he has built great working relationships with many of the community leaders, business leaders and political leaders.
Khalid doesn't want to be a Washington DC Representative he wants to be a Florida Representative, your representative. So often our representatives are consumed with Washington and forget the most important responsibility entrusted to them, their constituents.
When elected Khalid's priority will be Orlando and Orange County. He will work and listen to our state and local leaders while maintaining a personal relationship with district 10 constituents.
