A leader with the energy and experience to find additional state government efficiencies and create a climate which creates jobs and opportunity enters the race for Florida House of Representatives, District 33

With the drastic decline in State revenues, we must engage the public to determine their views on funding priorities.

Republican James D. DeCocq announced his candidacy for the Florida State Representative District 33 race. DeCocq, a small business owner, runs a firm that creates and manages local governments. His professional life has been dedicated to increasing local control and citizen oversight of our neighborhoods and communities. Entering an already crowded field, DeCocq (De "Cook") believes his experience as a small business owner and expertise in creating and sustaining cost-efficient local municipalities are needed more than ever during this time of declining revenues and increased demand for government services such as unemployment compensation and Medicaid funding. "With the drastic decline in State revenues, we must engage the public to determine their views on funding priorities." states DeCocq. DeCocq will use his expertise to guide the State toward greater implementation of cost-savings and efficiency measures. "We must review current tax policies to ensure State Government does not hinder a recovery and future economic growth. Unlike the federal government, the State must pass and fund a balanced budget."

Also, a strong believer in our responsibility to the environment, DeCocq was responsible for the historical Key Biscayne, FL beach restoration. Shortly after this success he went on to serve as Assistant City Manager for the Village of Key Biscayne, and Assistant City Manager and City Manager for The City of Sunny Isles Beach and the City of Marathon. In 2006, DeCocq began his own small business. James knows firsthand what it means to make a payroll and successfully grow a business during a major downturn in the economy.

DeCocq enters this race confident that his knowledge and experience will maximize his productivity in the Florida House. His official campaign kicks off on Saturday, November 14, 2009 at Avalon Park: Town Center Park with a community event that features local businesses and other exhibitors and booths such as: Neighborhood Watch, health screenings, pony rides, bounce house and more. Event times are 3:00-7:00 p.m. Local communities are the backbone of this country, and James believes this campaign for the Florida Legislature should be about meeting the needs of families right in their own neighborhoods.
