ORLANDO POLITICS – ONE TO WATCH: Raleigh “Lee” Steinhauer

ORLANDO, Fla. (FNN NEWS) – Not long ago, I had the pleasure of sitting down to get to know Raleigh “Lee” Steinhauer. I’d like to think I’m one with my ear to the ground when it comes to local influencers in politics, but this person, whom I had never heard of, surprised me. Let’s get to know Raleigh “Lee” Steinhauer.

Known as “Lee” to most, Steinhauer is the president and founder of The Steinhauer Group, a boutique government and legal affairs firm located in Orlando. He also currently serves as Government and Legal Affairs Director for the Greater Orlando Builders Association (GOBA), and is the Government Affairs and Legal Counsel for the Apartment Association of Greater Orlando (AAGO).

In addition to his professional work, Lee is active in several business and community related organizations in Central Florida and is currently Chair of the Winter Park Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee. Lee is also a currently member of the prestigious 2019-2020 Orange County Charter Review Commission.

Additionally, Steinhauer has served in a number of Republican political leadership positions, including President of the Republican Law Society at Seton Hall University School of Law and President of the Somerset and Northwest Region Chair of the New Jersey State Young Republican Organization. He also served on Governor Chris Christie’s gubernatorial campaign as a member of the New Jersey Republican State Committee.

“To me, the opportunity to be of service to my community is a duty, an honor, and a privilege,” said Steinhauer. I am a service-oriented person, and I find tremendous happiness and fulfillment in being able to use what skills and talents God has given me to serve others and better my community.”

We often see the persona of an attorney as self-centered, yet Steinhauer contradicted that stereotype. “It is one of the main reasons why I went to law school and became an attorney. And I have always fought harder for others than I ever would for myself.”

Steinhauer obtained his bachelor’s degree in criminal justice from the University of Delaware, and his juris doctorate from Seton Hall University School of Law. Steinhauer previously worked as a practicing attorney in New Jersey and New York, and is currently licensed to practice law in Florida, New Jersey, and New York. Steinhauer lives in Winter Garden with his wife Allison, three-year-old son Alexander and a sheltie named Peyton. “My family means everything to me,” he noted. “They are my greatest strength, and my inspiration. They motivate me to be the best person that I can.”

Brittany Corman Parks, President of the Orlando Republican Women Federated selected Steinhauer to provide a midpoint legislative update to her group. “I believe he’s a leader in our party that most people have not had the opportunity to get to know. Orlando Republican Women’s Federated tries to feature guest speakers that are up-and-comers in the party before they are even recognized. For example, ORWF had Judge Ashely Moody [now AG] speak in August of 2017, long before she had statewide name identification. We were the first Republican women’s club she spoke to statewide.”

When asked why the importance of the update, Parks explained, “ORWF is in the heart of I-4 and Lee has a fresh perspective on the future of our party here in Central Florida. That’s why ORWF asked him to give the Mid-Session update on what’s going on in Tallahassee. Should he ever decide to run for office….he’d have my support.”

If you’d like to meet and hear from Steinhauer in person be sure to attend the Orlando Republican Women Federated (ORWF) luncheon on Friday, April 5th, 11:30am, at Dubsdread Golf and Country Club located at 549 W Par Street, Orlando, Florida 32804.
