Amy Mercado

Amy Mercado is a working mom of 6, a caretaker to her ailing grandparents, and candidate for Florida's House District 48. . As a former healthcare worker, she knows firsthand that people can’t afford to get sick. She understands doing what’s best for us means affordable healthcare so working families don’t have to choose between life-saving medication and paying for rent. And as a mother, she knows that doing what’s best for our children means teaching to a child’s potential not a test. Tallahassee is out of touch – it isn’t doing what’s best for us and it’s time we fix that.
