Education

Representative Clemons worked hard to help secure $500 million for teacher’s raises across the state. As Vice President for Santa Fe College, he raises funds every day to provide scholarships for underserved, minority and non-traditional students. Education and workforce development is the key to improving our citizens’ lives and our community.

Environment

Chuck learned to swim in Poe Springs and has made it a priority as State Representative to protect our vast natural resources for future generations. He has worked to help secure over $200 million for springs restoration and co-sponsored anti-fracking legislation. He successfully passed a bill that will help to reduce the waste stream into our landfills and was named Legislator of the Year by the National Recycling Association.

Agriculture

Growing up on a chicken farm in High Springs demonstrated the importance of agriculture and what makes rural communities thrive. Representative Clemons serves as the Chair of the Agriculture and Natural Resources Subcommittee and on the Agriculture and Natural Resources Appropriations Subcommittee. He has worked diligently to protect and grow Florida’s second-largest industry, agriculture, which is crucial to our district and the entire state of Florida.

Economy

With a background in finance, Chuck believes the best way to create jobs in the private sector is working to create conditions that allow the American entrepreneurial spirit to flourish through less regulation and lower, fair taxation. Representative Clemons spent much of his career as a chartered financial consultant assisting individuals and small businesses with their retirement, investments, and insurance planning. He has worked to make sure State Employees and Correctional Officers received a much-needed raise. He currently serves as Vice-Chair of the Insurance and Banking Subcommittee.
