“Congressman Mica has played a key role in legislating for the allocation of funds for Puerto Rico and Florida to treat and control the Zika virus. The 7th District voters are indeed fortunate to benefit from his knowledge, aptitude and zeal in the US Congress where his experience, seniority and wise views are important in the world we live today,” Tomas Rivera Schatz, Member and Former President of the Senate of Puerto Rico.
“Puerto Rico has not been forgotten by Congressman Mica. His Puerto Rican constituents in the Seventh District are aware of his work to recognize the heroic and patriotic contribution of the Puerto Rico 65th Infantry Borinqueneers. I urge my friends from Puerto Rico to vote for him and spread the good word about his abilities and competence,” Jorge Santini, former Mayor of San Juan.
“Mica has his constituents in mind, and fights to protect taxpayer’s hard earned money,” Miriam Ramirez, Former State Senator, Puerto Rico.

“Congressman Mica is an omnipresent pillar of our community! He knows what Central Floridians need because he personally takes the time to come to us, meet us and listen to us. Equally important, he can get those things done in dysfunctional D.C. Congressman Mica is on of Central Florida’s best assets,” Eddie Fernandez, former Orange County Clerk of the Courts.
“Congressman Mica is a true public servant who has spent his career as a man of integrity and an advocate for those he represents.
