Orlando, FL — Democratic candidate for Florida House District 47 Anna V. Eskamani has earned the endorsement of Central Florida Congresswoman Stephanie Murphy.
“I am excited and proud to support Anna in her bid to serve the people of House District 47,” said Congresswoman Murphy. “I have seen Anna in action and she is a proven effective advocate. She is a strong and empathetic leader, who is fighting to ensure the safety and security of our community and to hold our state government accountable. This community deserves a State Representative who will always put people over politics, and that’s why I will do whatever it takes to make sure we elect Anna in 2018. I look forward to working alongside Anna when she becomes the next State House Representative for District 47.”
Before being elected to Congress, Murphy worked for the United States Department of Defense as a national security specialist. She also worked as an executive on investment efforts and government affairs initiatives at Sungate Capital in Winter Park and as a business professor at Rollins College.
Anna offered the following quote in response to her latest endorsement:
“I am humbled to have the support of Congresswoman Stephanie Murphy. As a Member of Congress, Murphy understands what it takes to be an effective leader and policymaker. She is ethics-driven and keeps a laser focus on the needs of Central Floridians, reaching across the aisle to work on issues like small business advancement and national security. I will do the same as your State House Representative, because Floridians deserve more than partisan gridlock and one political party in charge. Democracy is the competition of ideas, and we must work together if we hope to build a better state for all.”
