“Mark has the vision and experience necessary to help Hillsborough County tackle the problems we are currently facing,” said Cruz, who serves House District 62, covering parts of Hillsborough County and much of the Town-N-Country area of Tampa. “For nearly a decade, I have seen his work and passion for our community first hand and that is why I am proud stand with Mark in this campaign.”

“Mark is running for all the right reasons,” added Danish, the first term Democrat in House District 63, covering north Hillsborough County. “His business background, along with his deep ties to the community will greatly serve us all when he is elected.”

“As someone who represents four counties in our region, including Hillsborough, I find Mark’s approach to our transportation situation encouraging,” said Rouson, who represents House District 70, covering south Pinellas and parts of Hillsborough Counties. “He understands the local needs of Hillsborough County as well as the need for a regional approach that is vital for economic development. I am excited to support Mark in his campaign.”

“I am grateful to have the support of these great leaders who fight daily for the issues that will get our state back on track,” Nash responded. “They understand that we need strong leadership at every level of government, and I look forward to working with them on addressing the obstacles that are holding Hillsborough County back.”
