Today, the Tommy Gregory Campaign announced the endorsement of State Representative Danny Burgess. Gregory is running for the District 73 seat in the Florida House of Representatives, currently held by Joe Gruters, who is running for the Florida Senate.
“Tommy Gregory’s strong conservative leadership will be a welcome addition to the Florida House,” said Burgess. “He is a dedicated patriot, committed to ensuring that Florida’s economy remains strong and Florida is a state where folks from all walks of life, including our veterans, can flourish. I’m proud to support a fellow veteran and JAG, and I look forward to working with him. Plus, we need more Zephyrhills Bulldogs in office!”
Burgess was elected to represent District 38 in the Florida House of Representatives in 2014, and he currently serves as Chair of the Insurance and Banking Subcommittee. At 18, he was the youngest person ever elected to the Zephyrhills City Council, and at 26, he was elected Zephyrhills’s youngest mayor.
Like Gregory, Burgess is from Pasco County, where both men graduated from Zephyrhills High School. They also share the distinction of both having served in the JAG Corps. Burgess is currently a JAG in the Army Reserves, and Gregory served as a JAG for most of his 20 years on active duty in the United States Air Force.
“I’m proud to have the support of a leader like Danny Burgess,” said Gregory. “He shares my passion for serving our country, strengthening our communities, and making sure our veterans are fully supported. He is a dedicated public servant, and I’m excited about working with him to keep Florida on the right track.”
