Congresswoman Laurel Lee — June 24, 2024

Last week, I had the pleasure of meeting with the Consul General for Israel, Mr. Elbaz-Starinsky. I am proud to represent the strong Jewish community we have here in Florida’s 15th District. Amidst mounting aggression, it is imperative that the United States demonstrates steadfast solidarity with our great ally, Israel. My support for my Jewish friends and neighbors, as well as for our strongest ally in the Middle East, remains unwavering.


Serving the Tampa Bay Community

Feeding Tampa Bay is an integral part of our community, providing 154 million meals every year to individuals in need. Last week, I toured the new Feeding Tampa Bay facility in Tampa and had the chance to speak with some of the hardworking volunteers and team members who make Feeding Tampa Bay’s mission possible. Feeding Tampa Bay has grown to serve 10 counties throughout West Central Florida, and I am looking forward to seeing the positive impact they will have on our community for generations to come.


Hurricane Season is in Full Force

Hurricane season is in full force, and Floridians know all too well how quickly these devastating storms can come about. It is crucial to plan ahead and ensure you, your family, and your home are prepared. My team and I have compiled a comprehensive Disaster Resource Guide available on my website, and I encourage you to familiarize yourself with local contacts and prepare an evacuation plan now. Don’t get caught in a potentially life-threatening situation—prepare early. Please contact my office if you have any questions or need additional assistance at (813) 393-5077.
