Working Families Endorses Garcia in Pasco House Race
Tammy Garcia is running for the District 37 seat in the Florida House of Representatives.
LAND O’ LAKES – The Working Families Party has endorsed Tammy Garcia in the race for Florida House of Representatives, District 37.
The WFP is a national progressive organization to mobilize members for candidates who will fight for all working families. The Working Families Party will mobilize its grassroots supporter base to volunteer for Tammy Garcia in advance of the election. The Working Families Party endorsement is a “seal of approval” for progressive voters, Garcia said.
“I am proud to have the endorsement of the WFP. For too long, our legislators have forgotten about the working class that they are supposed to be representing,” Garcia said. “We need to fight to make legislation that protects all of our citizens and gives everyone a voice instead of just the 1 percent. I will fight to ensure that no one will have to work over 40 hours a week just to pay their bills.
“The Working Families Party is a national political organization that is recruiting, training, and electing the next generation of progressive leaders to office. The Working Families Party has had an impressive record of down-ballot wins in 2017, electing nearly 2/3rds of its more than 1,000 endorsed candidates.
“The endorsement process for many of these groups/ organizations is quite extensive. Lengthy applications, phone or in person interviews, follow up questionnaires, campaign donation requirements, etc. They want to know that the candidates they endorse truly align with their values. This is why when a candidate receives an endorsement, it is truly an honor. For me, it means they see truth and value in what I stand for. It means they know I will fight for what I believe in.”
HD 37 covers a portion of Pasco County including the unincorporated areas of Connerton, Heritage Pines, Land O’ Lakes, Meadow Oaks, Moon Lake, Odessa, Quail Ridge, River Ridge, Shady Hills and Trinity. The seat is currently held by Republican House Speaker Richard Corcoran, who is term limited.
Thus far, six candidates have announced they are running for the seat: Democrats Garcia and Denise Mestanza-Taylor, and Republicans Ryan Patrick Boney, Bill Gunter, Elle Rudisill, and Ardian Zika.
The primary is Aug. 28. The general election is Nov. 6.
