William Van Poyck


I am a single dad of 5 children from 21 to 12. I am the CEO of a private 132-bed work release center for men who are transitioning from prison back into society. I spent a total of 18 + years of my life before being paroled in 1984. Ten years later I was given a full pardon from Florida Governor Lawton Chiles. Today I run my own minimum security prison/work-release center. God is good!

I am also the State Chairman for the Constitution Party of Florida www.cpflorida.com. I ran for the U.S. Senate in 2010.
