“I am running for State Representative because I want our children to know we are not powerless in the face of our problems.”
Lloyd was born in the agricultural town of Santa Maria, California to Lloyd (Sr.) and Lynn Dabbs. Joining the U.S. Air Force enlisted ranks at the age of 18, he earned his officer commission at age 29 and graduated the top of his class.
The first in his family to attend college, Lloyd earned an undergraduate degree in Psychology, a post-graduate degree in counter-terrorism, and two Master’s degrees (Business and Strategic Intelligence) – graduating with honors in each.
He served with distinction for over 20 years – in direct support to every major combat operation since 1998 to include Kosovo, Iraqi Freedom / Inherent Resolve, Enduring Freedom (Afghanistan), and United Nations operations in the Democratic People’s Republic of Congo.
Florida is evolving into a progressive state whose citizens demand comprehensive legislative reforms and real leadership. We can drive these reforms to deliver economic equality, healthcare for all, educational reform, and climate activism through an aggressive, common sense agenda that will put Florida on the path to prosperity .
Forward to a Better, Inclusive Economy
To build a 21st Century Florida economy, we need to encourage inclusive and sustained economic growth with a focus on middle-class opportunity, small-business investment, and cutting-edge innovation
Forward for the Environment & Energy Independence
Climate change is an undeniable fact, humans are the cause, and the risks to Floridians are increasing with every day we do not act. Without a doubt, Florida sea-levels will rise, natural disasters / flooding will get worse, and our economy will be decimated if we do not rise to meet this challenge with unmatched sense of purpose and resolve.
We have a moral obligation to leave a better world for our children. Fortunately, we live in a state with an abundance of resources and the ingenuity to lead the nation in a green energy revolution. To meet this challenge, we can strengthen clean water initiatives, increase research and development (R&D) for next-generation energy technologies, invest in sustainable / resilient infrastructure across the state, and make a commitment to a carbon neutral Florida through aggressive cap-and-trade initiatives that can put real tax dollars right back into the hands of everyday Floridians.
We will move forward…together
