Brandon, Fla. – Brandon Republican Tom Lee’s latest endorsement from Hillsborough County’s top conservative leaders comes from Hillsborough County Commissioner and former State Representative Sandy Murman.
“As a fellow member of Hillsborough County’s delegation to the Florida Legislature, Tom Lee looked out for the community that he had been part of for decades, and represented this county he loves with distinction. Cutting taxes, reining in spending and strengthening Florida’s world-class business climate were key issues where Tom’s commonsense, solutions oriented approach, inspired by his life in his family business, proved invaluable.
“We need Tom Lee’s locally-grown conservative principles and commonsense leadership to work in Tallahassee again, and that’s why I’m proud to endorse his candidacy for the State Senate.”
Republican Tom Lee served as President of the Florida Senate from 2005-2006, where he worked alongside Governor Jeb Bush to deliver comprehensive litigation reform and pass historic improvements to Florida’s campaign finance and government ethics laws. A resident of Hillsborough County for over 40 years and graduate of Hillsborough Community College and the University of Tampa, Tom lives in Brandon with his wife Laurel Moore Lee, an Assistant United States Attorney for the Middle District of Florida. He is running for the State Senate in District 24, a district that includes the eastern portion of Hillsborough County.
