GOV. RON DESANTIS & CAROLINA AMESTY
Carolina stands with, and supports, Gov. Ron DeSantis. The United States of America faces many challenges and Gov. DeSantis is an example to the Nation.
"I'm determined to promote the values we hold dear alongside Gov. DeSantis!"
As an American with Venezuelan heritage, Carolina knows very well the consequences of socialism. She has filed to run for Florida State Representative District 45. Carolina will be a strong voice for your freedoms and rights. She will work tirelessly with Governor Ron DeSantis to lower taxes, improve healthcare, and protect our tourism industry.

I am running for state representative because our nation is in crisis. No. There are no enemies at our gate. There are no tanks rolling across our landscape as we see in the Russia Ukraine conflict. But our nation is rapidly heading for economic failure and a national security crisis.
As an American with a Venezuelan heritage, I know too well the consequences of embracing socialism, and I want to work with Governor DeSantis to defend our state from the agenda being pushed at us on a daily basis by the establishment in Washington.
We need strong voices in the legislature with the experience and resolve necessary for this mission. As an educator and business owner, I am ready to help lead the fight for parental control of our classrooms and free markets for all.
As a small businesswoman and educator, I know there are things that we can continue to do to keep Florida free.
I want to work to keep parents and guardians in charge of their child’s education. That’s because they know what is best for their child. Not the state. I will work for universal school choice and for the expansion of more charter schools so that no child is ever left stuck in a system that cannot meet his or her needs.
I want to work on more tax and regulatory reform so that we can do our part to make Florida the easiest place in the world to start and maintain a business. The government does not create jobs. Entrepreneurs and businessmen and women do that. The fees and regulatory structures that we put in place must be reviewed from top to bottom.
I want to do everything we can to protect our quality of life. That involves building and maintaining better transportation corridors so that we don’t spend half our day in traffic and also making investments in green space protection so that we do not lose the special outdoor experiences that make Florida special. That especially involves the protection of our waterways and springs.
But I cannot do these things alone.
Being a candidate is not about me. It is about all of us and what we want for our families and future generations.
I want freedom, safety, and prosperity for all Floridians. By God’s grace and with your help, we will make that happen.
IN DEFENSE OF YOUR FREEDOMS AND RIGHTS
The Nation is experiencing inflation that has not been seen in decades. The people of District 45 and Florida need some relief, and that relief can come from lowering taxes and providing tax cuts for items like groceries, gasoline, and sales tax on consumer goods. As State Representative, I will work to reduce taxes and bring much-needed relief quickly!
There are a lot of rights and liberties that we believe we have, but we don’t. I will seek to develop legislation at the local and state levels that ensures what the constitution promises is defended and guaranteed as law. She will become a sentinel against government overreach and legislature seeking to steal our freedoms by sleight of hand.
Our Families deserve to live the best life afforded to them under our Constitution. Yet often times it seems so far out of reach. I will fight to create legislation that improves the quality of life for all Families. I will fight to lower healthcare premiums, create jobs, and improve career training opportunities. I will always promote your well-being!
Federal overreach is running rampant in our society. The federal government continues to create legislation packed with hidden policies that create further division within our states, schools, and businesses. Carolina will be a stalwart force in developing, sponsoring, and advocating legislation that ensures that our American values live on.
STAND WITH CAROLINA AMESTY AND SHOW YOUR SUPPORT!
Florida State Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis has endorsed Carolina Amesty for State Representative.
“Carolina Amesty has been a hands-on leader in our schools, overseeing both K-12 and post-secondary education. She is a passionate supporter of school choice and stood with Governor DeSantis in his effort to protect parental rights in the classroom. It is my pleasure to endorse Carolina as the right choice and best conservative candidate for state representative in House District 45.”
“Carolina is a true conservative with a heart for public service and the values that will cause her to fight for the small businesses and working families of Florida. Carolina will take the same energy that has made her a successful businesswoman and educator to the Florida Legislature, and I fully endorse her campaign.”
“Carolina is the conservative force we need in the Florida House, and she has my full endorsement for her race in District 45. She is a champion for freedom, safety, and prosperity for all Floridians, and I am confident that her strong values and deep love for America will set her up for success in Tallahassee.”
“I wholeheartedly endorse Carolina Amesty for State House in District 45 because she is a strong conservative who will govern with integrity. Carolina is a proven champion for school choice and she knows that parents must be in the driver’s seat when it comes to their children’s education. She is a successful business owner in her own right, and because of her Venezuelan heritage she can speak firsthand about the loss of freedom when government takes too much control.”
“I know Carolina Amesty will be a strong voice for our conservative values in the Florida House, and I fully endorse her campaign for State Representative. Her background as an educator and businesswoman will set her up for success as she fights for universal school choice and economic growth in our state. I am confident in her ability to serve District 45 with strength.”
“It is very easy to endorse my friend. She is the right person at the right time for the job. Carolina is an educator and also a businesswoman. As a mom of 5 and a businesswoman in Central Florida for the past 29 years, I want to elect businesspeople to represent us in Tallahassee, people who understand the business climate and who know we need less regulations, less taxes, and more opportunities. I believe strongly in letting parents teach their children about life and letting educators educate about math, writing, and science. I know these are some of the issues Carolina stands for, and that is why I support her strongly for District 45.”
“As many of you know I have been blessed to be involved in dozens of Orlando area political campaigns since the 1960s. Over the years I have met few candidates with the natural ability to understand complex issues, while at the same time be understanding to those she is dealing with. This is just one of many reasons I support Carolina Amesty for State House District 45 in South Orlando.”
