Bob's Plan

 

"The time for talk is over. We need to take action and we can no longer wait."
- Bob Poe

More Jobs

With his working class family roots, Bob understands what it takes to be successful and wants to make sure that those same opportunities are available to all families regardless of race, income, or background.

Better Wages

Orlando is falling behind on the wages our hard-working people are paid, and Bob supports raising the minimum wage to $15 per hour to help ensure that hard-working middle class families can provide for their families.

Stop Gun Violence

Keeping our families and young people safe is a top priority. In Congress, Bob Poe will work to get illegal guns off the streets. He supports universal background checks on all gun purchases and a ban on military-style assault weapons.

Education Reform

A college education can no longer be the privilege of the few. That’s why he will make it a top priority to pass President Obama’s plan to provide a tuition-free education at our local community colleges for everyone.
