Today, Florida Democratic Party Chair Allison Tant released the following statement congratulating Rep. Janet Cruz on her election and House Democratic Leader-Designate:
“I want to congratulate Rep. Janet Cruz on her unanimous election as Democratic Leader-Designate. As a tireless advocate for women’s rights, a strong public education system, and access to affordable health care, Janet’s career in public service is a testament to the values of the Democratic Party.
“Under Leader Mark Pafford, Democrats in the House have established a positive vision for our state that works for all Floridians, not just those at the very top. I am pleased her colleagues have chosen Janet to continue the fight on behalf of middle class Floridians, and I look forward to her continued leadership.”
