Jared Moskowitz arrives in Washington with years of public service experience, delivering life-changing results to the people of Florida. During his first term, Moskowitz will work on initiatives to create jobs, improve schools, protect our democracy, strengthen support for Israel, and enact meaningful gun violence prevention legislation. Currently, Moskowitz serves on the House Oversight Committee and the House Foreign Affairs Committee.
Moskowitz answered the call of public service and was elected to the Parkland City Commission when he was in law school. Right away, he began working for the people he was elected to serve by putting forward and delivering on pragmatic solutions regarding public safety and environmental protection.
In 2012, Moskowitz was elected to the Florida Legislature, where he worked across party lines to deliver for his constituents, including passing bipartisan measures to make Florida’s schools safer, address climate change, support Israel, and implement animal welfare legislation.
When 17 people died in the mass shooting at his alma mater, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, he championed the movement to pass meaningful reforms. As a State Representative, he worked with the families of the victims and lawmakers on both sides of the aisle to enact historic gun violence prevention legislation, raising the age to buy guns from 18 to 21 and putting in place “red flag laws” giving law enforcement the power to take away firearms from those too dangerous to responsibly possess them. He also championed the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act, the most comprehensive gun violence prevention, school safety, and mental health bill ever passed in Florida.
In 2019, Moskowitz was appointed by Governor Ron DeSantis to be Florida’s Director of Emergency Management. As director, he was responsible for disaster recovery efforts throughout the state. Most notably, the response to the COVID-19 pandemic and Hurricane Michael, a Category 5 storm. During the height of the COVID pandemic, Moskowitz established testing programs, the vaccine rollout, and administered the distribution of millions of personal protective equipment to communities and hospitals across the state.
Most recently, Moskowitz served as a Broward County Commissioner. In this position, he worked to improve affordable housing, invest in critical infrastructure, expand public transportation, enhance public safety, and address quality-of-life issues on behalf of his constituents.
