As a husband and father of two, I decided to run for office after the school shooting in Parkland. I am determined to be a voice of reason in Tallahassee and refuse to accept that the NRA will dictate how Florida confronts gun violence in our communities. It is time to stop electing people who represent special interests, over the best interests of our families and communities. I am committed to refusing campaign donations from corporate PACs or lobbying groups. Funded by citizens, I will prioritize the needs of Nassau and Duval Counties ahead of the demands of wealthy donors and corporations.
Growing up in a multicultural household, I witnessed firsthand how irresponsible rhetoric from political leaders can create a hostile environment for children. Because of this unique background, I will work tirelessly to build bridges between all communities to ensure no child in America grows up feeling unwanted.
While attending the University of Florida I studied Chemistry and Business Administration. Because of my science background, I will fight to ensure our state government begins to take seriously the risks associated with rising tides and polluted water. In addition I understand that well-run businesses must embrace new technologies and use scientific research to inform their decisions to ensure success.
I have called Northeast Florida home for over 30 years and have a vested interest in seeing the First Coast thrive. My wife and I plan to open our own small business on Amelia Island and are proud to see our children learn and grow in the same schools we attended. I will work day and night for you and your family to secure a better tomorrow for Northeast Florida.
My name is Nathcelly Leroy Rohrbaugh, let’s embrace Florida’s future together!
