Elected Women Leaders Support Mica
22 Elected Women Leaders Support Mica
WINTER PARK, Fla. — More than 20 women elected leaders of Central Florida announced their support for Congressman Mica today. Additionally, the first female President of the Florida Senate and Lt. Governor, Toni Jennings, also joined in supporting Congressman Mica’s 2016 election.
Today, voters in District 7 will hear from the 22 women who agree Mica should continue representing the people of District 7 in a mailing to voters.
“When it comes to fighting for the things that make our lives better and safer, there’s one person I can always count on – Congressman John Mica,” Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs says in a new advertisement being sent to voters in the district today.
“John listens to a problem or concern then brings the necessary folks to the table to solve it,” adds Karen Almond, Seminole County School Board member.
The list includes some of Central Florida’s most respected women officials in Central Florida and nearly all of the women elected officials in District 7. Included are women from both parties, including Democrats Altamonte Springs Mayor Pat Bates and Winter Park City Commissioner Sara Sprinkel and Apopka’s first Hispanic commissioner, Diane Velazquez
“Contrary to what Washington Democrats want voters to believe, Congressman Mica’s commitment to women’s issues should be recognized,” says Campaign Spokesman Alan Byrd. “Mica worked with state and local leaders to establish the first domestic violence shelter in Central Florida and helped establish community health centers providing women’s health in underserved areas of our region. He also is responsible for changing out public housing in numerous communities in Florida.”
