KISSIMMEE, FL – March 4th, 2020 Ricardo Rangel, announced that he officially entered the race for State Representative in House District 43, where he previously served from 2012 to 2014. Ricardo is running on a platform focused on expanding access to affordable housing, ensuring Florida’s economy works for everyone and fighting to keep our communities safe.
Ricardo served twelve years of service in the U.S. Army, where he currently serves the state of Florida as a sergeant in the Florida Army National Guard. Ricardo’s military service greatly influenced his views on guns and responsible gun ownership. He said, “I’m committed to banning assault weapons, closing gun show loopholes, and revising Stand Your Ground.”
When speaking about his priorities, Ricardo also said, “safe and secure homes are key to improving education, expanding employment opportunities, and keeping our community safe.” He also committed to fighting for living wages and Medicaid expansion because many hard-working Floridians struggle to make ends meet despite working multiple jobs. Ricardo knows first-hand that Florida’s minimum wage is not enough to support a family in Central Florida. He said, “I will fight to make Central Florida and HD 43 more equitable places to live for everyone.”
Ricardo has dedicated his entire life to service and hopes to serve HD 43 as an elected State Representative once again.
