What is the Florida First Pledge? IT IS VERY SIMPLE!

Florida First 

• I pledge to place the interests of Florida and Floridians before any other nation, state, political entity, organization, or individual. 

• I pledge to be accountable and explain to my constituents how I considered the best interests of Floridians before voting for or against any piece of legislation or action taken by my office.
