About the Candidate My name is Cornelius Jones, and I'm a Democrat running for Florida's District 11 House of Representative seat. Over the years, I have worked at the grassroot level to create change in communities that I have been a part of. My experience is vast but working and communicating with people is one of my greatest attributes. As a counseling professional, I am uniquely skilled in to listen and help come up with resolutions to complexed issues. Politically, I understand that we all have different worldviews and may stand on different sides of the isles on today's social and political matters. However, I think it's critical for us to identify ways to stand together instead of creating reasons to stand apart. We live in the same county and should be working together to make our community a more inviting place to live.
I'm a business owner and military veteran with decades of leadership experience. My vision for Florida's future is centered around improving the quality of life for all citizens.
The best way to lead change is by working on the behalf of all residents of District 11. This involves including all people from a range of different social, ethic, economic, and political backgrounds. I will not leave out anyone based on their gender, sexual orientations, gender identity, etc. The policies that I will work to support will always represent fair and just treatment.
As a gun owner, I support our 2nd Amendment and all other Constitutional Rights. As someone that is a survivor of gun violence, I also support sensible gun safety measures. This isn't about gun control or trying to take away guns, it's simply about gun safety. I vow to be a voice of reason on legislation to protect the right to bear arms and help keep the public safe.
Proudly Served America, Ready to Serve District 11
