Corinna Balderramos Robinson - (D) Candidate for Congress on the Ballot in Martin and St. Lucie Counties
Martin and St. Lucie Counties - Tuesday November 1, 2022: Democrat Corinna Balderramos Robinson is a democrat running against incumbent republican Brian Mast for a seat in the U.S. Congress.
They're on the ballots in Martin and St. Lucie counties seeking to represent the voters in Florida Congressional District 21 which covers both of those counties as well as northern Palm Beach County.
Like her rival for a seat in Congress, Robinson is a veteran of the U.S. Army. She retired from the military after 25 years of service with the rank of major. She served as Deputy Provost Marshal in Iraq. And after retiring from the Army, she led the Pentagon Force Protection Agency. She believes strongly in national defense and the U.S. support of Ukraine in its war with Russia.
“I believe that this war with Ukraine is well intended, and we’ve given a great deal of money to help that country," said Robinson. "But the real purpose, this is to help defeat Putin and the country of Russia from killing innocent civilians to further expand their territory. But China is our number 1 threat and other actors such as North Korea and Iran as well.”
Robinson has a doctorate in management of Homeland Security and a Master’s in Criminal Justice and Public Policy. She recognizes inflation is a problem, but she doesn’t blame the Biden Administration.
"I’d say this is the result of a global pandemic. I believe it’ll take time for our supply chain recovery to build itself back up. We need to continue to reduce energy prices. I’m personally disappointed that we have several corporations price gouging, unnecessarily. We certainly need to put more pressure on the m to not do so.”
Robinson raised three sons as a single mother, all of whom are college graduates. She is a strong believer in a woman’s right to choose, critical of her rival’s position on abortion which she calls extreme, and critical of the Supreme Court’s decision in Roe vs Wade.
“We’ll it was a horrible decision. I feel that women have fought so hard to have more freedom. I feel that it’s still a woman’s choice, and I also believe that in cases of rape or incest, I believe a woman, again, a woman should be able to choose. And I believe that the incumbent is following an extremist ideology with regards to abortion.”
Incumbent Congressman Brian Mast has not yet responded to a request for an interview.
