Why I'm Running
I’m Pam Keith and I’m running for Congress in Florida’s 18th District.
Growing up, my father taught me about the importance of service to country and service to others. I felt the call to serve and followed in his footsteps by joining the Navy.
Service isn’t about personal ambitions or profits. It’s about putting others first, giving back to your community, and taking the steps necessary to improve the lives of others.
Now our country is in a moment of crisis. In Florida alone the coronavirus pandemic has left 600,000 sick with COVID and 1.2 million out of work. The health crisis of the pandemic is made worse by our pre-existing healthcare crisis. Even now, millions of Americans cannot afford to refill a prescription or see a doctor.
We face a racial justice crisis, where millions of our fellow black and brown Americans are demanding an end to the discrimination, abuse, and death that they face as individuals and communities.
We face a climate crisis, where irreversible damage is being done to our planet and coastal communities are in jeopardy.
And magnifying all of our challenges, we are suffering from a crisis of leadership. Donald Trump has failed to rise to the moment and provide the leadership our nation needs to get through this pandemic. He allows Vladimir Putin to put bounties on the heads of our troops without saying a word or retaliating in any way. He continues to undermine the very foundation of our democracy: questioning the validity of voting by mail and inviting foreign adversaries to interfere in our elections.
But the crisis of leadership is not just about one man. Republicans like Brian Mast continue to enable Trump. They are too weak to defend our democracy or its citizens. We need pragmatic leaders to roll up their sleeves and fix the damage Trump has done.
That’s why I am proud to be the Democratic candidate taking on Brian Mast in this battleground district. This is the most important election of our lives. If we win here in Florida 18, we win Florida, and with it the White House.
Please join our campaign. These failed leaders cannot rebuild an America to make us proud—but together, we can.
