WINTER HAVEN, FL - U.S. Representative Darren Soto (FL-09) is pleased to announce the Grand Opening of his third office in Florida’s Ninth Congressional District. This office is conveniently located in the Winter Haven City Hall to better serve our constituents in Polk County. All are welcome and light refreshments will be served.
Congressman Darren Soto said, “The people of Puerto Rico have spoken. By an overwhelming margin, they have voted to become full partners in our great country. They have voted for statehood. I said I would respect – and fight – for their wishes, and that’s exactly what I intend to do. This is now a matter of civil rights and equality. These Americans serve in our military, pay federal taxes
Agriculture is an integral part of Central Florida’s thriving economy. With hard-working farmers, fertile land, a lush climate, and a year-round growing season, we help feed our country and the world.
Darren believes the biggest issue facing our District and our Nation is the need for higher paying jobs. To meet these needs, Darren is working to foster strong long-term job growth by boosting existing high tech sectors in and around our District and supporting the robust tourism and agricultural industries which make up the foundation of our economy.
Immigration advocates meet with Congressman Soto in Kissimmee.
The United States is a nation of immigrants and a nation of laws. Our immigrants are working; our laws are not. Darren is working to fix them.
Darren is committed to expanding our energy mix by incentivizing renewable energy such as solar, wind, biofuels, and hydropower. Hailing from the Sunshine State, he understands the importance of solar, in particular, to assist with peak generation demands in the middle of an average Florida day when the sun is shining and the air conditioners are running.
Darren will fight to protect Medicare, Social Security and Medicaid for our seniors and our persons with disabilities to safeguard healthcare and financial security for the most vulnerable among us. Our seniors have paid into these programs their entire lives and have earned these benefits. Our disabled and their families need our help to give them a reasonable quality of life.
All Americans know that freedom isn't free. Our active military, veterans and their families give more than most and some give their lives to protect America and our way of life. Darren works closely with, and employs, veterans. He appreciates the sacrifices they make for all of us, and respects the sacred obligation our government has to serve those who have served us.
