Boca Raton’s Mayor and City Council are endorsing one of their own — State Rep. Bill Hager for re-election to House District 89.
Prior to his move to Tallahassee, Hager, a Delray Beach Republican, served three terms on the Boca Raton City Council.
Mayor Susan Haynie, Deputy Mayor Constance Scott, Council Members Scott Singer and Michael Mullaugh have each backed Hager’s re-election effort. Haynie had worked with Hager during her 5 terms on the council before her election as mayor in 2010.
“I have worked directly with Bill Hager for more than a decade. He has shown that he is committed to the City of Boca Raton with seven years of service to the City Council,” she said in a statement. “Now in Tallahassee, he has worked equally hard for our City and the people House District 89 and has put our interests first.”
Hager, an attorney who specializes in insurance and reinsurance, is seeking his third term in the Florida House for the district covering Palm Beach County and eastern corridor of I-95 between Boca Raton and Singer Island.
“It is an honor to receive the support of members of the City Council,” Hager responded. “They recognize my hard work on behalf of District 89’s residents, and I look forward to continuing our partnership as we fight to improve public safety, bring and protect jobs in our community and provide residents with the services they deserve.”
