(Tampa, FL) Supported by a Kickoff Host Committee of more than 80 members, James Grant officially launched his campaign for Florida State House on Thursday, February 11th, at the Emerald Greens Clubhouse. As a third generation Tampa resident, James was proud to be launching his campaign in Carrollwood, where he was born and raised. While addressing the over 200 community leaders and supporters in attendance, James stated:
“I’m not asking you to trust government, I’m asking you to trust me to keep government out of your way. Because it’s not my job as a representative to go to Tallahassee and create legislation that runs your lives. It’s my job to go to Tallahassee and make sure no one else does”.
