Candidates for US House FL District 15

Scott Franklin

Meet Scott Franklin. He’s a businessman who served our country in the U.S. Navy.

Scott is a lifelong Republican who knows that freedom isn’t free. He has experienced first-hand the commitment and sacrifice of the men and women who wear the American uniform to defend our nation.
Scott was a Naval Aviator in the U.S. Navy. During his 26-year career – 14 years on active duty and 12 years in the reserves – Scott flew jets from the decks of 13 aircraft carriers. He was deployed to the Mediterranean, the Persian Gulf and the North Atlantic. He participated in combat operations in the Gulf, Bosnia and Kosovo. After 9/11, Scott was recalled to active duty with the U.S. Central Command.
Having owned and operated a small business in Lakeland for the past 20 years, Scott knows the meaning of private enterprise. He knows what it takes to meet payroll, and he knows how government bureaucracy can stand in the way of innovation, economic growth and American prosperity.

Ross Spano

Meet Ross Spano

Ross was born and raised in Hillsborough County, is humbled and honored to represent Florida’s 15th Congressional District in the United States House of Representatives.

Ross was born in Tampa, Florida to Frank and Patricia Spano. His father was a homebuilder and while he never made a fortune building homes, he was able to provide for his family and instill strong Christian and conservative values in his children. Growing up he would remind Ross that “if you honor God, treat people right, and persevere without exception, you can accomplish anything. That’s the American Dream.”

Ross carried those ideas with him as he graduated from Brandon High School and started working. As a young man, Ross and a friend were sitting in church, and Ross pointed to a young lady singing in the choir neither of them had met. “See that girl with the blonde hair? I’m going to marry her.” Sure enough, Ross and the young lady started dating, and he married his beloved wife, Amie, less than a year later. Together they have raised four beautiful children: Kali, Vincent, Caleb and Isaiah. And they recently welcomed their first two grandchildren, Silas and Lilah.

Ross worked full-time to support his young family and put himself through college attending classes at night, graduating from the University of South Florida with a B.A. in History when he was 28 years old. He then enrolled in the Florida State University College of Law and graduated with a J.D. with Honors, where he was a member of the FSU Moot Court Team and the FSU Journal of Transnational Law and Policy.

Ross has spent most of his career as a shareholder of his own law practice representing individuals and small businesses in Hillsborough County. In 2012, he felt called into politics and successfully ran to represent Florida’s 59th district in the Florida House of Representatives. He served in the Florida legislature for three terms, during which he stood as a strong advocate for human trafficking victims and against human traffickers. Ross authored and passed more anti-human trafficking bills than any other member of the Florida House in history. He also strongly believes in the right to life, supporting our veterans, the 2nd Amendment, supporting small business, and limited government.

In 2019, Ross was sworn-in to the U.S. House of Representatives where he continues to fight for conservative values and to preserve the American Dream for the next generation.

Representative Spano was appointed to serve on the following Committees for the 116th Congress:
