The Sean Shaw for Attorney General Campaign today launched its debut bio video, “Meet Sean Shaw – This is how we win.”
The video tells the story of a campaign based on the needs of the people, not what the experts or the big special interests believe the Attorney General should be focusing on. Following Sean Shaw’s career promoting the needs of Floridians as Insurance Consumer Advocate, his work in private practice helping families harmed by the BP oil spill or defective Chinese drywall, and his time as a State Representative standing with the students of the March for Our Lives movement, the ad tells the story of a candidate ready to fight for the people, not the powerful, from his first day in office.
“When I launched this campaign, my only concern was the needs of the people of Florida,” stated Representative Sean Shaw. “When the experts said to stay silent, I vowed to be the loudest voice in the room on the issues that truly matter, because that’s how we’re going to win this campaign. That’s the message I’m taking to every corner of Florida and that’s the message that is resonating with voters that will take us over the finish line this fall.”
Raised in North Florida, Representative Sean Shaw was taught the importance of public service from a young age by his father, Leander Shaw, the first African-American Chief Justice of the Florida Supreme Court. During law school at the University of Florida Levin College of Law, Sean clerked for a United States District Court judge focusing on constitutional law and the protection of civil rights. After law school, Sean worked in private practice representing workers, families, and small businesses during some of their most trying times. As Florida’s Insurance Consumer Advocate, Sean was an insurance industry watchdog protecting consumers against abuses from insurers. He led the process of negotiating lower rates for homeowners, pushed for faster response times from insurers after emergencies, and ensured rates were fair and justified. He currently represents State House District 61 in Tampa, where he has fought for more funding for public education, for criminal justice reforms, and for common sense gun safety legislation to make communities safer.
