KISSIMMEE, Fla. (FNN NEWS) – Former Kissimmee City Commission candidate and tech business owner Andrew Jeng filed paperwork to run for Florida State Representative, District 43 on Monday, June 10, 2019 according to officials at the Florida Department of State Division of Elections.
District 43 covers northern Osceola County and includes Buenaventura Lakes, Campbell, Kissimmee, and Poinciana. Representatives serve two-year terms and are paid $29,697 per year. Representatives can serve no more than four two-year terms.
Jeng is the second candidate to enter the race for state House of Representatives District 43. The incumbent, John Cortes (D-Kissimmee), opted out of a fourth House term to run for Osceola County clerk in 2020.
Jeng joins fellow Democrat Alex Barrio, who entered the race May 20 and was immediately endorsed by his former boss, U.S. Congressman Darren Soto.
