Will McBride to run for newly drawn District 14 of Florida Senate

in Uncategorized by

William McBride announced Friday he‘s filing papers Monday seeking to become a State Senator from newly drawn District 14.

McBride, who was once a public school teacher, youth camp director, and school football coach, is the son of migrant workers who has devoted much of his life to volunteering and serving the community.

“Serving the people of District 14 in the State Senate would be the honor of a lifetime.  I’ve worked hard my entire life to make sure those who deserved justice found it.  As the next State Senator from district 14, I’ll take that same fighting spirit to right many of the wrongs that everyday Floridians face.”

William McBride is an attorney who has represented thousands of personal injury and wrongful death cases.

 At the age of 10-years-old, McBride says he decided to become a lawyer because his family was defrauded in a “rent-to-own” scheme in which his family lost their home and financial resources. McBride says he will never forget the first night he spent sleeping in his family’s car. This experience, McBride says, continues to motivate and drive him to fight aggressively for his clients today.

Before beginning his legal career, Mr. McBride served the community as a public school teacher, high school football and track coach, motivational speaker, youth minister and camp director. Mr. McBride’s father came to the United States as a migrant worker. His father was the first to graduate from college and founded a Spanish speaking church to serve the community.
