FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Fort Myers Mayor Randy Henderson is announcing he will run for the District 19 congressional seat.
That seat is being vacated by Congressman Francis Rooney.
Henderson said he will run as a Republican with a focus on the environment, quality of life, and expanding business and infrastructure.
“My 10 years as Mayor, including 9 years on the City Council, has provided insight and vast experience working in the public sector including solving complex issues while improving the quality of life for the citizens of Fort Myers,” he said. “I believe this experience provides me the background to lead the charge for serving citizens in District 19 and bring focus and support from Washington to our district.”
District 19 encompasses Fort Myers and Naples.
