Republican Javier Enriquez announced today he is entering the race for Florida House District 114.

Enriquez, a Miami native and attorney, is a lifelong resident of the district. He graduated cum laude from the University of Miami School of Law and now is a partner at Jeffrey and Enriquez, PLLC. His legal specialty is marital and family law, but Enriquez also has experience in election law, commercial litigation, and employment litigation.

“District 114 has always been my home,” said Enriquez. “It would be an honor and a privilege to serve my friends and neighbors in Tallahassee. I am committed to supporting policies that foster economic growth, empower the middle class, and help families and small businesses get ahead.”

After Democrat Daisy Baez resigned last year, the HD 114 seat had sat vacant until Tuesday, when a special election resulted in Democrat Javier Fernandez filling the seat. A new election will be held in November.

In addition to his legal career, Enriquez also spends time working with the community. He serves on the board of the Gulliver Schools Alumni Advisory Council, the Knights of Columbus Coral Gables Council, and the United Nations Women’s Miami Chapter.

Enriquez sounded confident in his ability to turn the seat red. “Our campaign is off to a great start. I am looking forward to meeting and connecting with the residents of my district to see how I can better serve them in Tallahassee. I am confident that together we can continue to build a stronger economy, a stronger community, and a stronger Florida.”
