  1. Thanks for hosting Luis. This is where it starts! We need a fresh, unbiased voice in the Florida House. A common man, with real conservative values. It's gonna be a great race!

  2. I don't know if Luis is a good guy or not, but there is not a better public servant in Jacksonville than Charles McBurney. It would be foolish to support anyone besides our man Charles, who has a much longer track record of civic leadership than Mr. Melendez, who has a clear and well-considered vision for his service as state representative, and who is known by everyone in both parties as a man of maximum integrity. The only way Mr. Melendez should ever be considered for District 16 State Representative is when Charles is ready for the U.S. Congress. It has been decades since Jacksonville has had a Congressperson who has both a lot of important accomplishments and a lot of integrity. Charles can get us there.

    • If you mean Charlie McBurney is a complete and total puppet-on-a-string for the Florida Trial Bar, then yes... he is.

      McBurney is a back bencher in Tallahassee and only peeks out of his hole when the Trail Lawyers have a bill they need him to sponsor. A total and complete empty suit.

    • I have known Luis for a few years, and can't say anything bad about him. He is the best!!!! What he says, he means and will help anyone to meet their goals. I am proud to have Luis as my President of the Florida State Assembly of Surgical Technologists. He is for the people by the people. He will make a great Representative.
