Florida State House of Representatives, District 52
Lloyd is a retired Air Force Officer and now an Intelligence and Acquisitions Expert for the Department of Defense, specializing in global and multi-national special operations. Starting in the U.S. Air Force junior enlisted ranks at age 18, he earned his officer commission at age 29 and graduated at the top of his class. 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. For his service, Lloyd was awarded the Defense Meritorious Service Medal, Meritorious Service Medal, and Joint Service Commendation Medal.
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. After he retired from Patrick AFB in 2018, Lloyd settled down in Viera, Florida. He has been married to his wife Marie for 19 years and has three children - Scarlett, Ethan, and Aiden.
Lloyd launched his campaign for State Representative in 2020 due to his continued passion to serve both his community and his nation. He is running for State Representative because he truly believes fresh leadership is required to meet the challenges facing our nation. He knows that healthcare should be considered a right and not just a privilege for those who can afford it and that our education system can evolve into a true engine of opportunity. He knows that our climate is changing and that if we do not respond with decisive action, our children will suffer the consequences of our inaction.
