Corinna For Florida


The people of CD21 have made it clear: It's time for deeds, not words. Service to my community has been a priority for me my entire career, be it as a soldier in the U.S. Army, as Legislative Affairs director in Iraq, or as leader of the Anti-Terrorism and Force Protection Directorate at the Pentagon; with my students as a professor, or simply by lending my neighbors a helping hand. I have always worked to make the lives of those around me better.


When I served as a Brookings Legislative Congressional Fellow, I authored talking points and testimony and regularly met with constituents to discuss their concerns. I saw first-hand how quickly effective legislation can change someone's life and fulfill their dreams. Now, I want to serve as your voice in District 21. I want you to put me to work for you. It's time for deeds over words, and it's time to get things done.
