Former Collier County Democratic Chair Annisa Karim has launched her campaign for Florida Senate.
Karim will face Republican incumbent Kathleen Passidomo who is running for re-election in State Senate District 28, which includes Collier, Hendry, and the southern portion of Lee counties.
“I am running because our elected officials don’t represent us, only special interests,” Karim said. “I want a government that works for ALL the people and gets things done! The people in our community need a choice when they go to the polls. We’ve been sending the same people to Tallahassee for years, but things are not getting better for us. In fact, for the average working family, things are getting worse. We don’t feel safe. The hardest working people, including police officers, firefighters, teachers, and nurses can’t afford to live where they work. Our health and our economy are at risk from dirty water. Our elected officials, who have been in power for years, have not addressed these issues.
“We need fresh ideas and a renewed spirit to work together and solve our problems. I will get things done, and I am honored to have the chance to represent you in Tallahassee. Please vote for me, Annisa Karim, for Senate District 28. It is time for change.”
Karim joins a record slate of Democrats who will appear on the primary and general election ballots this year as the Blue Wave washes over Florida.
