A native of Midway, Florida, Al represents Florida’s 5th Congressional District. Al has devoted more than half of his life to public service, guided always by the belief that the greatest gift an individual can give is service to their community. He served the people of Florida for 28 years in the state legislature as a member of the Florida House of Representative and the Florida Senate. Al is a committed public servant who brings a hard-working, problem-solving spirit to Congress and to the task of creating jobs, improving access to a quality education from the preschool through the post-secondary level and protecting working families. He begins each morning with a prayer, and a firm promise “to do the people’s work.” Al’s daily promise drives him to work to make campaign finance reform a top priority in Congress. He knows that the best way to do the people’s work is to get government working for the people, and not for billionaire mega-donors.
