Republican Danny Alvarez announced his candidacy Monday for the newly drawn Florida House District 69. Alvarez, a Tampa-based lawyer, has filed to run for the newly proposed east Hillsborough County seat.
In announcing his candidacy, Alvarez said he is running “to build on our state’s record of results and defend the principles and values enshrined in our Constitution.”
The race could pit him against Democratic Rep. Andrew Learned, who has also said he will likely run for the newly drawn seat.
Alvarez is a U.S. Army veteran and serves as an adjunct business law professor at the University of Tampa.
