My name is Robert Asencio and today, I take great honor in announcing my candidacy for State Representative in District 118, my home for over 15 years.As your State Representative, I will change what has become the status quo in our district of legislating for the good of a few rather than the good of all.In announcing my candidacy, I declare my faith in the Florida that we all deserve, a Florida that offers the highest quality of public safety, education, employment opportunities, a Florida that is possible through honest public service, personal integrity and fiscal responsibility.
I am running because, like so many of you, I feel our legislators must be held accountable to the Floridians they serve.
I am running because we need representatives who understand the full consequences of their legislative actions on the citizens they serve and communities they live in.
I am running because I, like you, seek a positive change among those who are elected to serve us, a change that includes taking into account the needs of District 118, our great State and its people.
I am running on a pledge to bring about fair, well founded, common sense legislation that is researched based and driven by the public’s greatest needs.
I am running on the basis of my more than 30 years experience in public service and law enforcement.
I am running because my fellow citizens in District 118 and Florida deserve better.
As a moderate and former life long Republican who believes in fiscally responsible, efficiently run, well structured government that is essential to providing quality public services, I further commit to:
Collaborating with all who seek to improve the quality of life in Florida and its people,
Breaking from what has become the norm in Florida of legislating based on ideological beliefs and/or self-serving alliances, and
Serving for the good of all,
It’s time to break from the norm of counterproductive partisan politics and begin the process of working hard and working together for the good of all in District 118 and the State of Florida. Thank you.
