Lee Mangold, Florida House District 28
Including parts of Sanford, Winter Springs, Altamonte Springs, Chuluota and more
Joy Goff-Marcil was elected to the Florida House of Representatives on Nov. 6, 2018. She previously served on the Maitland City Council for six years, and had been elected by her peers as vice mayor of the city. As a city council member, Joy voted for stronger ordinances to protect wetlands, promote city-wide walkability, streamline permitting processes, and maintain the quality of Maitland's neighborhoods and schools.
With her degree in political science and 25 years of experience as a local lawyer, Goff-Marcil has the technical knowledge to make good legislative decisions and to defend the home rule rights of cities and counties, one of her top priorities.
Before being elected to the city council, she volunteered hundreds of hours at local schools and helped to start multiple community initiatives, including the Walking School Bus, the Learning and Cultural Committee for the Maitland Public Library, Healthy Maitland morning walks, and Communities Putting Prevention to Work at the local level.
Goff-Marcil wants Central Florida to lead the way in Tallahassee to fully fund public education and invest in teachers, expand Medicaid to bring healthcare to more Floridians, protect waterways and stop tax breaks for polluters, and enact gun safety legislation.
