U.S. Rep. Dennis Ross will seek a third term in Congress representing Central Florida’s Congressional District 15.

The Lakeland Republican will host two campaign kick-off events on Tuesday, January 21 — at 1:00 p.m. in Lakeland at the Florida Citrus Mutual building and in Plant City 3:00 p.m. at the American Legion Post 26. CD 15 covers much of the northern parts of Hillsborough and Polk Counties.

In announcing this latest campaign, Ross says he is a “conservative Republican who has a proven track record of fighting for lower taxes, individual freedoms, and less government mandates in the lives of central Floridians.”

“It has been an honor and privilege to work on behalf of the good people of Polk and Hillsborough these past three years in Congress,” Ross added. 

In 2012, Ross’ voting record received a 96 percent positive rating from the Washington D.C.-based American Conservative Union, the nation’s oldest and largest grassroots conservative lobbying group.

“I care deeply about our community, and I have been tirelessly fighting for families across the 15th District to ensure that they can keep more of their hard-earned money and maintain their freedoms,” Ross said. “There is still much to do, and I look forward to continuing this journey together.”

Florida Citrus Mutual is at 411 E. Orange Street in Lakeland; American Legion Post 26 is at 2007 West Baker Street in Plant City.
