Welcome to Dale Glading for State Representative District 54
For almost 30 years, Rev. Dale Glading has served as a minister in one of the most difficult and dangerous places in the United States: our state and federal prisons. As founder of The Saints Prison Ministry and Risk Takers for Christ, Dale has personally ministered to hundreds of thousands of inmates in more than 350 correctional institutions across the U.S., Canada and Kenya. More than 45 of those prisons are located here in Florida.
Why is that important?
First, it shows that Dale is a man of faith as well as a man of action.
Second, it demonstrates that Dale has the courage of his convictions.
Third, it proves that Dale is concerned about reducing our state’s recidivism rate, making our streets safer and saving taxpayers’ dollars.
But Dale wasn’t always a prison minister. For 11 years, he worked as a department head at a retirement community, giving him real-life experience understanding and addressing the needs of our senior citizens.
Throughout his life, Dale has been guided by the core principles contained in two historic documents: the Bible and the U.S. Constitution. It is these principles – as well as his vast life experience – that make Dale an ideal candidate to represent Indian River County and the Treasure Coast in Tallahassee.
“If you’re not a liberal at 20, you have no heart; if you’re not a conservative at 40, you have no brain.” – Sir Winston Churchill
Dale Glading is not only a rock-solid Republican, but also a staunch conservative. Fiscally and socially.
Leaner and more efficient government… check! Lower tax rates for individuals and corporations… check! Fewer over-reaching governmental regulations… check!
Passionately pro-life, an ardent supporter of school choice, and in favor of the traditional definition of marriage… check!
But Dale is also a man of deep compassion for those who are struggling in life. The poor, the elderly and those with special needs.
His 30-year ministry career has covered virtually every aspect of society, from serving seniors in a retirement community for more than a decade, to working with at-risk youth, to seeking to reduce Florida’s crime and recidivism rates since 1992.
All of which makes Dale Glading the right man for the job of representing the Treasure Coast in Tallahassee.
