CORRINE BROWN -- SERVING THE PEOPLE OF FLORIDA
By Corrine Brown, Member of Congress, (D) Fl 3rd Congressional District
Serving the people of Florida is my passion. Having served Florida's 3rd Congressional District for the past seventeen years, I know my record stands out among all of the candidates. As an agressive advocate for my district, I've helped create tens of thousands of good paying jobs; and I work each day to bring your fair share of your tax dollars back home to Florida. I've improved education by hiring more teachers and reducing class sizes, worked to get the COPS program to Florida with an additional 100,000 cops, and passed the largest increase in veterans' health care in the history of the United States. I've fought to keep Florida's military bases open, and I will continue to fight for a strong military presence in Florida, especially in my district.nbsp; I believe my record of not just talking about Florida's needs, but of delivering for YOU and YOUR FAMILY is why I should continue my important work in the House of Representatives.

For years, Florida has been a donor state to the Highway Trust Fund and Airport Improvement Program. I was a leader in the fight to change transportation funding through "SafeTea-21," which returns 57% more transportation money to Florida. Florida remains a donor state and needs a fighter to continue delivering for Florida in the House of Representatives and to drive our tax dollars home for schools, veterans, seniors, families, and our military and business communities!

Today our families face many problems, including job loss, high mortgage rates, and foreclosures! More than ever our citizens need a proven leader with a strong voice in the U.S. House of Representatives to continue fighting every day for Florida's 3rd Congressional district, one who delivers the goods! In times like these with America's economic difficulties, it's more important than ever to have a determined negotiator with proven delivery skills at the table for YOU in Congress.
Women's health issues are a primary concern for me. From better pre-natal care to mammogram testing to better elderly care, the needs of women have been ignored too long and must be addressed starting now. Did you know that 7 out of 10 working-age American women (64 million women) either have no health insurance, insufficient health care coverage, trouble paying medical bills or a lack of access to needed health care due to cost? That's just wrong - and I'll continue fighting for Florida's women.
I've served in Congress for 17 years helping the families of Jacksonville, Orlando, Gainesville, Daytona-Deland, and Palatka; and I've delivered thousands of good jobs and hundreds of millions of federal dollars. This is the kind of solid delivery we need to move us in a new direction. With your help, I'll continue to be the strong voice that YOU need in the U.S. House of Representatives, one who will be at the table fighting and delivering for YOU! We face crucial issues regarding jobs, health care, education, families, social security, veterans, military, transportation, clean energy technologies, ports, roads, and railroads. As your Congresswoman, I'll continue delivering for YOU and YOUR FAMILY!"
