A Welcome Message From Bill McCollum

For more than three decades, I have been honored to serve our nation and the people of the great State of Florida. As an officer in the United States Navy and Naval Reserve, for twenty years in the United States Congress, and most recently as Florida’s Attorney General.

Given the current economic and political climate in our nation, and here in Florida, it has become clear to me that I can best put my years of service and experience to use by running for Governor of the State of Florida.

Our state is facing some of the most difficult short and long term challenges we have seen in decades. We need a leader who will tackle these obstacles and turn them into opportunities. We need to continue strong public policies that preserve a business environment where taxes are low, government red tape is minimal, and companies are encouraged to locate and expand in the Sunshine State.

As Attorney General, I have committed myself to making Florida a safer place for all of our citizens. Under my leadership, our state has become as a national leader in the fight against child pornography and Internet child predators. I developed strategies to lower gang activity, protect consumers against identity theft, and bring justice to those who defraud and exploit our citizens. Most importantly, I’ve worked to protect those who cannot defend themselves – our children and seniors.

These are tough times, and we need strong leadership to get our economy back on its feet. I am proud to stand on my record of service and humbly ask for your support as I work to continue serving the State of Florida.
