Meet Dee Melvin

My Name is Mamie A. Melvin, but my friends call me Dee.  I am running for Florida House of Representatives, District 33, for many reasons.  I am running because I believe our legislator should represent everyone in District 33.

 

We deserve a Representative who will represent all our American values.

 

We deserve a Representative who will support public education so all children have the chance to achieve their full potential and fulfill their dreams the way I did.

 

As a child I never had to worry about active shooter drills.  We deserve a Representative who will support common-sense gun laws.  Our children should not have to worry about active shooters.

 

We deserve a Representative who will fight for affordable health care.  When I was a child, we could not afford to go to the doctor.  I never saw a doctor or dentist until I was 12 years old – we did not have health care and neither do many of our children in the district today.

 

We deserve a Representative who will fight for a living wage and affordable housing.  No child in Florida should go to bed hungry or live in poverty the way I did.

 

I was born in North Carolina and raised in Clinton and Columbia South Carolina.  I lived in poverty, often with no electricity, water or indoor plumbing.  Often, I did not know where I would lay my head down at night.  At the age of 12, my life changed forever.  I was sent to live in a Methodist children’s home and lived there until the age of 18.  This move opened a world of opportunity for me that I would not have otherwise had.

 

I am an Air Force Veteran.  I met and married my husband, Kenneth Melvin, at my first duty station.  Ken is also an Air Force Veteran.  Between us, we have over 60 years of service to our country.  I am happy to say we have been married for 42 wonderful years.  I retired from the Air Force at Patrick Air Force Base in Florida in 2007.

 

While in the Air Force I took full advantage of the GI Bill and graduated with honors from Bellevue College in Bellevue, Nebraska with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Administration.

We have lived in Florida since 1998 and in The Villages since 2014.
