Carlos Guillermo Smith Endorses Dr. Lee Mangold for District 28


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

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.”
