Florida Dems hire new deputy political director
“We are excited to announce that Roosevelt Holmes III will be joining our team as Deputy Political Director,” said FDP Chair Allison Tant. “Roosevelt will bring his strong central Florida campaign experience and grassroots network to the team, and we can’t wait for him to hit the ground running in Orlando. With so much at stake in 2016, Florida Democrats are fired up and ready to win.”
“I'm thrilled to join the Florida Democratic Party team and I thank Chair Allison Tant for affording me the opportunity,” said FDP Deputy Political Director Roosevelt Holmes III. “I look forward to working with our candidates, activists, and Democratic allies as we build up strong, grassroots powered campaigns in central Florida and across the state.”
Roosevelt Holmes III is a Florida Democratic campaign staffer and legislative assistant. The 30 year-old Orlando native and UCF graduate has worked on successful Democratic campaigns at all levels of government, including President Obama’s 2008 campaign and Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer’s 2012 reelection campaign. Most recently, he worked in Congresswoman Kathy Castor’s office, the U.S. House of Representatives’ Committee on Education and the Workforce, and served in the Government Affairs and Public Policy Department of the UNCF. Roosevelt will work at the Party’s satellite office in Orlando this election cycle.
