“I am very pleased to endorse Joy Goff-Marcil. Joy has served her hometown of Maitland thoughtfully as their Vice Mayor and on council. She did so by asking the right questions and by making her vote about her entire community, not just a few voices. We need that call to action at the state level. I applaud her passion for public education, clean waterways, sensible gun legislation & small businesses. I know with her ability to work with all sides we will take back our state and put all Floridians first again.”

“Seminole County public schools are the heart of our community. Our public school system adds tremendous value to both our homes and businesses. Yet money is siphoned from that system into unaccountable voucher schools while public schools are saddled with endless testing requirements. That’s why we need a public school champion like Joy Goff-Marcil representing us in Tallahassee. Joy will fight for fully funding our public schools. Joy has my vote and my whole-hearted endorsement.”

Larry Furlong , Former Seminole County Commissioner and School Board Member

“As a parent, Joy worked to support every child in our diverse classrooms at Lake Sybelia Elementary. I am confident Joy will strengthen access to mental health services for our children and families and fight to enact safety measures that will support teachers’ ability to teach rather than police our students. Joy brings a desire for sensible legislation that supports healthy and safe schools and communities throughout Florida.”
