Recognizing the effective state and federal partnership they have developed delivering for the people of South Florida, Congresswoman Debbie Mucarsel-Powell (FL-26) and Congresswoman Donna Shalala (FL-27) are endorsing Senator Jose Javier Rodriguez (D-Miami) for reelection to Florida Senate District 37.
“There has been no more successful lawmaker in the Florida Legislature when it comes to combating the threat of climate change than Senator Jose Javier Rodriguez,” stated Congresswoman Debbie Mucarsel-Powell. “As we work to bring needed federal funds to combat this issue to South Florida, we need leaders working with us at the state level who understand that we must put science first in the decisions we make. I’m endorsing Senator Jose Javier Rodriguez for reelection because I know that he will continue to be an effective voice for the people of District 37 when it comes to protecting and preserving our natural environment for years to come.”
“Throughout his time in Tallahassee, Senator Jose Javier Rodriguez has fought to expand access to quality, affordable healthcare for Floridians,” declared Congresswoman Donna Shalala. “With the Affordable Care Act under assault by Republicans intent on stripping people of their insurance and of protections for those with preexisting conditions, it is more important than ever we have elected leaders who will fight to expand access to healthcare. Senator Jose Javier Rodriguez has always prioritized the needs of his constituents first and that’s why he has my endorsement for reelection to District 37.”
“Over the last two years, I have worked closely with Congresswoman Mucarsel-Powell and Congresswoman Shalala on the issues impacting the people of South Florida,” said Senator Jose Javier Rodriguez. “Our constituents are well served by the great partnership we’ve developed as we work to solve our climate crisis, expand access to affordable healthcare, and find innovative solutions to our infrastructure issues. I am proud to have their support and look forward to continuing our work together once I am reelected in November.”
