“Colonel David Smith’s campaign has my full support for Florida House District 28,” said Winter Springs Mayor, Charles Lacey. “David’s leadership experience from a career in the U.S. Marine Corps is needed up in Tallahassee. His conservative values reflect those of our community. David is highly qualified and I’m glad he is running for public office. He has my strongest endorsement.

“David has my full support,” said Sanford Mayor, Jeff Triplett. “He has the leadership skills, business experience, strong moral values and the fiscally conservative principles we need in Tallahassee to represent the people of Seminole County.”

“David is well known for his honesty, leadership and work ethic,” said Longwood Mayor, Joe Durso. “I’m confident he will represent the people of Seminole County extremely well in the Florida House of Representatives.
