Each candidate was sent the following message. Their responses are below.  For some of the candidates that we had met with previously, a summary has been written on some of the topics of concern. 

As a cofounder of Parents for Informed Choice SWFL,  we have a number of supporters who are still on the fence on who to vote for. Their biggest concern are the issues surrounding medical freedom.  In order to provide supporters with accurate information we were wondering if you could provide your stance on the following questions below.

  1. Given the impacts of COVID 19 and what took place as precautionary measures, what do you feel the government's role should be in regards to individual healthcare, and why do you hold that opinion? In other words, does the government have the right to mandate individual healthcare?

  2. Do you support legislation that would mandate certain healthcare practices in order for children to attend public school and adult rights to employment- including psychological examination, a mandatory vaccination schedule, or any other medical procedure?

  3. How do you plan to address any privacy and constitutional violations in regards to contract tracing as it relates to Covid-19?


Thank you for your participation!

Parents of Informed Choice SWFL is neither supporting or endorsing these candidates. Each candidate that was listed as active at the time of correspondence was contacted with the same message.

Not all candidates have responded.

We will continue to follow up and post the responses as they are received.
