in Uncategorized by

Hillsborough County Commissioner Al Higginbotham and former Plant City Mayor Dan Raulerson endorsed Tom Lee for the Florida Senate today.

“Tom Lee has been an important leader in our community for decades, and has provided valued leadership for Hillsborough County as a private sector job-creator and as an accomplished conservative public servant,” said Commissioner Higginbotham. “With a lifetime of experience in creating jobs and promoting economic development for Hillsborough County to his name, I know that there’s no better conservative to represent our community in the Senate than Tom Lee. I endorse Tom for the State Senate, and I hope my
fellow Republicans in Senate District 24 will join me in supporting him on August 14th.”

“Plant City deserves a great conservative State Senator who is in touch with more than the key needs and issues of our community, but the big picture of job creation throughout the Tampa Bay area that attracts job-creators and families to Plant City. Tom Lee is the candidate for Senate with that kind of vision,” Raulerson said.

“Our city and our Senate District will greatly benefit from the leadership and experience Tom Lee can offer,” Raulerson continued. He’ll be a Senator who knows from Day One how to successfully promote and pass conservative, pro-jobs and pro-family policies to strengthen Florida’s economic future. And he’ll work with Hillsborough County cities like Plant City to ensure our needs have a strong conservative voice in Tallahassee. I’m confident Tom will be that voice, and I endorse and look forward to working with him
when he serves us in the Senate.”
