On Tuesday, November 19, 2013, the incumbent Representative for FL House District 69, Kathleen Peters, announced that she entered the Republican primary for the U.S. House of Representatives in FL Congressional District 13; the seat vacated due to the death of Rep. Bill Young and requiring a Special Election in March, 2014. Unfortunately, this is often the case where opportunistic, career-minded politicians use one office as a stepping stone to another office he or she perceives as “higher” or more powerful. Many people have asked me the “Resign-to-Run” applied for Peters. Florida Statue 99.012 prohibits an incumbent state official from seeking another state office, but only prohibits state vs. federal campaigns if they run on concurrent election cycles. As it is a special election for U.S. House, FL Congressional District 13, that will take place on March 11, 2014; it is not a race concurrent with the election cycle for FL House 69 with an election date of November 4, 2014. She is within the law, but after serving only one year in the Florida House and raising over $250,000, her character and loyalty are fully revealed.
I assure you that this is the only office I seek and I will provide citizens with the loyalty and services they deserve. I will not take advantage of my constituents or the contributions they make in developing our businesses and jobs. I will never abandon my post or forsake the hard-working people who, like me, call this our home. All that I desire is to be YOUR Representative in Tallahassee and to promote lower taxes, more jobs, and greater freedoms for the People and our businesses.
I cannot do this alone and I need your help to gather petitions, raise contributions, and speak to your neighbors about the real opportunity for change for which I stand. You can contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org and, if you prefer Twitter, follow my handle @RandyLPF, and by calling (727) 519-3038.

I am proud to be a candidate for Florida House of Representatives, District 69 in southwest Pinellas County. With such a great variety of natural resources and beauty, we have great opportunities to continue and grow our tourism revenue to the benefit of resort, food and beverage, financial, construction, retail operations, and more. They deserve free markets and lower taxes to create more prosperity and jobs for the People.
In my consideration of potential laws before the House of Representatives, you can be assured that in my focus on individual liberties, I will use the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights as my ultimate guide regarding the proper role of government. In short, I promote lower taxes, more jobs, cutting government expenditures, and greater civil liberties.
The major advantage in having a Libertarian in the Florida House is to have someone not beholden to either the Democrat or Republican parties and is not afraid to blow the whistle of opposition to favoritism, graft, and opportunism within our Legislature.
I will use my voice to fight for the restoration of your 4th Amendment rights. I will tell Floridians how they are being abused and who is responsible. No other candidate will promise and deliver this to you as citizens. For me, freedom is not just a word – it is your right as an American! I am not silent and I will fight for what is decent and right. I oppose the Patriot Act, NDAA, CISPA, and FISA without equivocation. Your privacy is directly related to your freedom and I will not be silent in the face of incursions by the federal government against the citizens of Florida.
Toward our prosperity, my commitment is to increase our presence and revenues as one of the greatest tourist destinations in the world. I will never vote to raise taxes on individuals or businesses, but I will dissect our expenditures until we can finally give the people of Florida what they have earned – a balanced budget.
I will caucus in the House based on the issues; not on party loyalty. Those who would cut our expenditures on government programs will earn my support, as will those who place a premium on the individual liberties of our people and the trading liberties of our businesses. My goal is to promote the concept that the People deserve the liberty of person and property they were promised and to protect the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the Great State of Florida.
