According to the FIVE for Florida website:
“Floridians want elected officials who will speak honestly with them about our problems and enact common sense solutions.
They want more transparency and accountability in their government and for government to stop making financial commitments that taxpayers cannot afford; they want to eliminate the cronyism in our political system and for politicians to stop picking winners and losers in the marketplace; they want to reduce over-burdensome regulations and remove needless or protectionist barriers to entry for entrepreneurs and job creators; and they want an education system that gives them options and a real choice for their children.
ONE: Reform Taxes & End Corporate Welfare
TWO: Don’t Make Financial Promises Taxpayers Can’t Keep
THREE: Be Steward of Good, Transparent Government
FOUR: Empower Kids With the Best Education
FIVE: Free Entreprenuers to Pursue the American Dream
Five for Florida outlines the key issues facing our state and proposes the real solutions that citizens and elected officials can support that will ensure Florida is the best state in the nation, both now and for our future generations.”
