Government Affairs

Florida is the 3rd most populous state in the United States. It is distinguished by its large Hispanic community and enjoys a high level of population growth. Florida is a battle ground state for presidential elections and is an incubator for trend setting policy. Due to the term-limited environment in the State and Local arenas, there is a constant flux of talent and policy issues.

  • Federal

  • Florida has 29 members in its Congressional Delegation. Over half of the members began their service in local or state office. Florida has a diverse congressional delegation with members in key committees and leadership positions. The Florida delegation has had both Republican National Committee and Democratic National Committee chairmen and has been a force in Washington despite party affiliation when united on an issue.

  • Executive

  • Florida has a unique strong Cabinet structure as the members are independently elected statewide. The Cabinet consists of the Governor, Attorney General, the Commissioner of Agriculture and the Chief Financial Officer. Under the Cabinet's jurisdiction, each member carries one vote in the decision making process.

  • Legislative

  • Florida consists of 67 counties with hundreds of municipalities (also known as cities, villages or towns). Each local entity has its own regulatory system and bureaucratic dynamics.
