About Aretha

As a retired Navy veteran, former teacher, businesswoman, and mother.  I have spent my life serving.  I will work every day to fight for the things our community needs: increased funding for our schools, higher paying jobs, affordable housing, health care, and economic development .

Some of my accomplishments include: standing up against lobbyists in the face of opposition from powerful interests; connecting hundreds of Orlando residents, families, and business owners to vital programs and resources; securing over $6 million dollars as a federal grant writer. 

I would be honored to have your vote on election day so I can serve you in Tallahassee.
