WHAT WOULD I DO IF ELECTED?

I would like to take care of the issues that have not been fulfilled by our politicians for decades. To protect small businesses and the middle class, which creates most of the jobs and supports our economy. It seems that career politicians have turned their backs on the middle class. There is no protection for the working class Americans or our small businesses. The American dream seems like a pipeline dream or a fairy tale. The middle class has no security protection, resulting in more and more small businesses to close there doors.
  I will encourage Tallahassee to come up with a bill, which will attract more businesses to relocate to Florida. If there are more businesses, it will create more jobs!

A DIFFERENT APPROACH FOR THE EDUCATION SYSTEM

I will introduce a different approach in the education systems, which will not be a socialist education system. In this bill a school and its classes will be based on an A. B. or C. merit system. In this system, a school will compete with other schools and final exams will be done by rotating teachers around the County School Board. A homeowner may have an option for a private school of their choice.
  I will also support involuntary drug testing in public schools, with the parents option to consent. So we will be able to keep our schools drug free and the crime down.
  I believe that our children’s life in a school must be private matter between a student, teacher and parents. It shouldn’t be a subject to a data gathering for private purpose. It must stay in a school kept private. Common Core is not a solution to a better education. It is designed to control the feature of our children.

We must keep our schools and children drug free.
  The drug problem in our state is creating a permanent underclass generation and elevating the crime rate. To help with the drug abuse in this state I propose that we start in the school systems and educate our children on the drug abuse. Also, I would like to advocate a literacy after school program. This will not only keep our children off the street, it would also give them an extra activity to occupy their time. This will also give them more knowledge, and a better understanding of real life and education. Therefore, this will lessen the crime rate and the drug problems we are currently having. I would advocate an involuntary drug test program as well. If the Principle or teacher has a reason to believe that a child is under the influence of drugs. In doing so, we can protect our children and keep them safe. I believe if we take action now, we can keep our children from overdosing, like so many have.

PROTECTING MIDDLE CLASS AND THE AMERICAN DREAM AT ANY COST

Protecting the middle class should be our highest priority. I will encourage the House and Senate to join me to create an "American Dream Protection Act." Which will protect the middle class, and redefine the word "low income".
   In this bill, if an individual's yearly earning is $35,000.00 or less, or families of four or more earnings are $55,000.00 or less, and if their employer doesn’t offer health care benefits, and they are employed fulltime, then they would have an option to enroll in a non-profit insurance group or being eligible for state provided health care, such as Florida Kid Care. Also, if a worker has lost his or her job for any reason and this person is a homeowner, they should be able to qualify for mortgage insurance towards their mortgage. This benefit should last up to six months, while the person that is unemployed is searching for work. This would protect home ownership in our state. After all, it is the middle class who carries the biggest burden of paying taxes.

  I will also propose the House and Senate to change the definition of low income. Which means that the person has a job and is working, but is not able to produce enough money. In my opinion, working means that the person has a job or owns a small business, but their monthly net income is lower than the minimum cost of living. Low income benefits are not life time benefits, a person should pay into it, to get it, just as unemployment!

  Since Florida is a right to work state, this bill would make Florida more attractive to the out of state businesses, that want to relocate or expand - this will create more jobs!

  Florida should be a role model to the rest of the country, showing that how we do protect our working class, and because Florida is not a socialist state.

  I am Zahid Roy and I'm running for Florida State Senate.
  As a small business owner, in my own personal experiences, I have been through a lot, and kept telling myself, something has to be done! It is getting harder and harder for small businesses to keep their doors open. Middle Class is going through hard time to keeping up with cost of living.
Our politicians are disconnected with the middle class and the problems we face. I am a middle class citizen, who is running for other middle class Floridian. So I am asking for your support. I’m encouraging you to join me in my campaign and to protect the American Dream (Life, Liberty and pursuit of Happiness)!
  God bless you and God bless The United States of America!
