Amanda Murphy is a financial advisor and local business leader running for the Florida Senate because we need a strong voice fighting for hard working families and small business owners in Pasco and Pinellas Counties. As Floridians struggle with rising healthcare costs and property taxes, less funding for our local schools, the long recovery from Hurricane Irma, our legislature is filled with hyper-partisans who are controlled by powerful special interests who only look out for themselves.
Amanda is running because the people of Pasco and Pinellas Counties need someone who puts us first -- someone who knows what it means to get up every morning, go to work and earn a living --someone who is not beholden to Tallahassee politicians and their special interest handlers. Pasco and Pinellas Counties need someone who knows how to fight – and win – for the hard-working people of this region and she is ready to fight for them every day.
Amanda Murphy is known as a “matter of fact” problem-solver who focuses on serving her constituents over the wants of special interests or political insiders.
Senate District 16 is considered by most political observers to be a “swing” district and does not necessarily favor one party over another. A poll conducted earlier this year by the nationally-recognized Anzalone Liszt Grove Research showed Murphy leading Republican Ed Hooper by +3 points in a potential matchup.
