Hillsborough County State Attorney Andrew Warren assembled a 33-member finance committee that includes prominent Democrats and Republicans.
Warren announced his re-election campaign earlier this month.
“We’ve spent the last two years reforming our justice system to make our streets safer and build stronger neighborhoods,” Warren said. “A big part of that is engaging our legal, business, and political communities and bringing them together to address these issues. These community leaders have been strong supporters of our efforts, and I’m so thankful that they’ve taken on this role with our campaign.”
Tampa land use attorney David Singer will chair the committee. Singer ran unsuccessfully as a Democrat in 2016 for the House District 60 seat currently held by Jackie Toledo.
“Andrew has spent his first term making good on his promise to modernize the State Attorney’s Office and bring a culture of reform that matches our values as a community,” Singer said. “The members of this diverse committee have dedicated themselves to continuing that success and doubling down on that progress. Andrew has been a breath of fresh air for our county and our legal community. We’re excited to begin the work of his re-election campaign.”
Warren’s finance committee will work on his behalf to secure another term.
Since taking office two years ago, Warren has implemented a number of reforms within the Hillsborough justice system including removing guns from domestic abusers and increasing civil citation programs and diversion courts for first-time nonviolent offenders and juveniles to avoid jail time.
Warren defeated former State Attorney Mark Ober in what was considered a major political upset for the popular incumbent.
