- Red shirt freshman kicks off campaign back to State House
- Fundraiser headlined by Representative Chris Sprowls, along with Representative Paul Renner, both of whom are future House Speakers
- Fundraiser comes on heels of legislative session in which Olszewski navigated a bill to help child victims of sex trafficking receive improved treatment to Governor Scott’s desk for signature.
- Olszewski returns to his district having secured nearly $3-million in appropriations, and having received the endorsement of the Central Florida Hotel and Lodging Association as a “pro-hospitatlity” candidate.
State Representative Bobby Olszewski announced his re-election campaign with a fundraiser hosted by fellow Representatives Chris Sprowls and Paul Renner in Orlando later this month. Both Sprowls and Renner are in line to be Speaker of the House in future years.
“I am thrilled that our designated future Florida House Speakers Chair Chris Sprowls and Chair Paul Renner will be in Orlando to help kick-off our efforts in our Florida House District 44 campaign,” the campaign announced.
The fundraiser comes on the heels of a legislative session in which Olszewski worked to successfully pass three bills through the lower chamber, including one which was signed by Governor Scott, providing support for victims of child sex trafficking.
“As a red-freshman I was thrilled with the results from this past session,” Olszewski said in a statement to the Observer. “Getting three of my six bills passed off the house floor was very satisfying especially getting child sex trafficking victims more treatment at hospitals and residential treatment centers which was signed into law by Governor Rick Scott.”
Olszewski handily won a special election to fill a vacancy created when Eric Eisnaugle was appointed to the bench, defeating his Democrat opponent by 12 points, providing a boost to a Republican party which has lost several special elections throughout the state of Florida.
“Bobby O” rides the momentum of an endorsement by the Central Florida Hotel and Lodging Association as a “pro-hospitatlity” candidate, and returns home touting $3-million in appropriations for the district:
“I was also able to get nearly $3-million of appropriations back to our local community including Health Central Hospital of Orlando Health, the Town of Oakland for their water treatment to help restore Lake Apopka, and Lake Sumter State College where many District 44 residents attend their Clermont campus.”
The fundraiser is set for Monday, April 23rd in downtown Orlando.
