“I am deeply honored and humbled by the confidence voters of State House, District 57 have placed in me,” said Jake Raburn.

“Today’s results are a testament to the many months of hard work and selfless dedication by our many friends, family, volunteers and supporters.  Words cannot adequately express my appreciation for all you have done to support us throughout this campaign.  I would also like to especially thank my wife, Melissa, who continues to support my efforts and without whom I would not be standing before you today. Today marks the beginning of a new direction for our community.  I hope you believe as I do, that Florida’s future is still bright.”

“As State Representative, I will work hard to restore prosperity to our community through new job creation and economic growth.  I will support investment in classroom education, work to keep college accessible and affordable and lead efforts to increase vocational and technical opportunities to prepare students for the jobs of the future.  And, I will support efforts to crack down on fraud and abuse, safeguarding our tax dollars.“

Together, we can put Florida back on track.  Please join me as, together, we make Florida an even better place to live, work and raise a family.”
