Dr. Lee Mangold, Democratic candidate for State Representative in District 28, has
received an endorsement from Carlos Guillermo Smith, Florida State Representative for District 49 in East
Orlando.

In a speech at a Mangold fundraiser in Oviedo, Rep. Smith said “the reason I decided I wanted to jump
on to Lee’s team and very proudly say that I was supporting his race and his campaign is not only
because he’s such a passionate advocate for the issues we care about, it wasn’t only because like me
– and like many of you – he has a major problem with the Florida Legislature spending $67M on the
Marjorie Stoneman Douglas School Safety Act to train and arm teachers and faculty in our public
schools, but I’m also supporting Lee because he has a very strong campaign, he has a community of
support, I’m impressed even by the fact we have such a great great community turnout here in the
district he’s running in, but also I’m supporting Lee Mangold because I know that he can win!”

The evening’s events included over 60 guests and donors from the local community and in District 28.
“Rep. Smith is someone I truly look up to in the legislature, ” Dr. Mangold replied. “He is a tireless fighter
for true progressive values, such as supporting public education, supporting affordable and available
healthcare for all, and a continual fight for equality. I’m truly honored to receive Carlos’ endorsement,
and I look forward to serving alongside him in Tallahassee.”
