Florida House of Representatives
Representative Holly Raschein
My life changed forever when I moved from Alaska to Florida. When I first stepped foot down here, I knew the Florida Keys would be home for the rest of my life.
I learned soon after that we can’t take our lifestyle for granted and knew I wanted to dedicate my life to serving this beautifully unique region. I began working as a legislative aide, serving our previous two representatives to the Florida House and learned how to be an effective voice in the Florida Legislature.
In 2012, I was honored to be elected to my first term serving our friends and neighbors in the Florida Keys and South Miami-Dade County. As a fiscal conservative, I worked hard to ensure that our spending is targeted, efficient and cost effective. I’ve worked to reduce our windstorm insurance rates, funding critical need wastewater projects and passed legislation promoting agritourism for the benefit of our farmers.
With our economy growing and our resources at a premium, our families and businesses need someone who understands what it takes to run a business and be a good neighbor. My husband Ryan owns a small business and we know first hand the struggles and challenges faced by job creators from workforce availability to regulatory compliance.
Our son will soon be entering school, and I understand the desire all parents have to give their children a great education. In Tallahassee, I’ve worked to ensure every student has access to world-class schools and fought to increase public school funding every year.
I am proud of my record serving you over the past four years. From improving our economy to protecting our environment, it is a record that I would like to bring back to Tallahassee.
I’m Holly Raschein and I want your vote.
I am honored to serve the community on numerous boards and committees in my role as:
- Board of Directors Member and Florida State Director of the National Foundation for Women Legislators
- Member of the Florida Council on Arts and Culture
- Chair of the Florida Keys Area Health Education Center
- Member of the Key Largo Rotary
- Past Chair and Member of the Florida Keys Healthy Start Coalition
- Graduate and Past Board Secretary of Leadership Monroe County
- Precinct Woman of the Monroe County Republican Executive Committee
- Past Vice President and Member of the Upper Keys Business & Professional Women
- Member of the Mariners Hospital Bougainvillea Ball Committee
As a public servant working during the past decade both in the district and in Tallahassee, I know constituent service is the key to helping people and finding solutions. With our economy still recovering and our resources at a premium, our families and businesses need effective representation that can be counted on to get to work and get the job done. I look forward to continued service as our state representative and being an effective voice for you in Tallahassee.
About Our District
The Keys and South Miami-Dade County are the gem of the nation. Emerald waters, sand bars, and sunsets are part of our everyday life down here. South Dade sits just north of the Keys and acts as the gateway to both Everglades and Biscayne National Parks. Our home however, faces many challenges from recovering the tax dollars we send to Tallahassee to preserving our pristine environment.
As our Representative in the Florida House, Holly works everyday to ensure that we are able to balance our low unemployment rate with the need to protect our legendary tropical environment and maintain our unique way of life.
Join Holly today and help ensure that we can preserve our lifestyle for generations to come.
