Sheldon Lisbon Announces Candidacy For House District 100

Sheldon Lisbon

Sheldon Lisbon

Sheldon Lisbon, currently city commissioner of Surfside, has filed to run as a democrat in House District 100. The new district hugs the coastline and takes in many of the beachfront condos, home to mostly retirees from the Northeast United States.

“This new district shares many common interests and I know I am best able to serve the citizens of House District 100,” said Lisbon.

Lisbon taught American government and economics in the D.C. public school system for 36 years. He and his wife also ran a small business in the Silver Spring, Maryland area. Since relocating to Florida in 1996, he has been active in many local associations, was president of his synagogue, and is currently a part-time teacher at three high schools in the area.

Lisbon plans to bring his small-business experience to Tallahassee to create more jobs, with special focus on targeted job training for our unemployed and underemployed. He also will dedicate himself full-time to fight for seniors who deserve high quality healthcare.

“It is time our community has someone who will speak up for the taxpayers instead of the lobbyists,” he said. “My pledge to the voters on August 14 is that I will work tirelessly for the residents of Florida, not the special interests in Tallahassee.”
