Who Is Austin Parris?: Biography
This is the first part of a several part blog I’ll be posting on here so that you all may get a chance to know me as well as possible.
I’m a 21 year old Florida native, and I love this state. Even though you’ll see and hear me mention all the things we need to do better, it’s not because I feel we’re not very good, it’s because I truly care about this state’s progress. If I didn’t care, I wouldn’t run, simple as that.
I currently am studying Economics/Political Science at Palm Beach Community College, which has an overall attendance almost equal to that of the University of Alabama. All my ideas and issues are researched thoroughly by myself and thought over and decided upon by myself. I believe in personal knowledge, and that knowledge and research can bridge the gap in personal experience, because I cannot have personal experience in every profession which falls under state governance, but I CAN acquire knowledge to assist with the governance of those professions/issues.
I feel that too often we can put such an emphasis on “experience” that we often to forget to really pursue a sentiment of ideas, and this leads to us electing slogans rather than plans. When using this criteria, more candidates fall to the wayside and those who truly deserve the offices as they were designed come to the surface. This is the approach I take when viewing the representative position, that it is one not of general theory and ideology, but a position of authority to manage specific issues relative to the area which he/she represents for that period of time.
So that being said, I approach this campaign with a few issues which I feel are paramount to Florida’s forward movement in terms of economic and political success, and those will be discussed in the next part of this series.
Any comments, questions and concerns are much appreciated. Thank you for reading, and I look forward to representing you.
