#17 on the list of Tampa Bay’s most powerful politicians is Representative Mike Fasano.
“Representative Mike Fasano has spent the past 19 years in service to the people of Florida. Having spent 10 years in the Florida Senate, and now his ninth year in the Florida House, Mike Fasano has put the needs of hardworking Floridians and retirees at the top of his TO-DO List. As a champion of consumer-friendly legislation and policy, he has consistently dedicated his time and effort to making sure that the average Floridian has a voice in a process that is too often dominated by large corporations and the highly paid lobbyists that represent them.
Additionally, increasing public safety, creating ways to access affordable health care for the uninsured and the under-insured, and ensuring that runaway property insurance rates are kept in check, have all been foundational principles upon which his legislative priories are built. Topping all is a highly regarded constituent service program. Representative Fasano works to ensure that everyone he represents has the ability to participate not only in the legislative process, but to make sure they receive the help they need to manage the maze of government bureaucracy.” — Senior legislative aide Greg Giordano
