Congressman Mack has announced he will be running for U.S. Senate seat now currently held by Bill Nelson.
“Congressman Connie Mack has decided to run for the U.S. Senate. He will bring a badly needed conservative voice to the campaign discussion and to the U.S. Senate,” said Hall.
“We also need to ensure that we keep our conservative vote in Congress. I am proud to have the opportunity to fill a pair of those important shoes.
“In May I opened an Exploratory Committee, and traveled throughout Southwest Florida to have a conversation with folks about the challenges facing our Country. I want to thank so many for taking the time over the last several months to meet with me and discuss the pressing issues facing our families and communities.
What I have learned from these conversations is that we share a frustration with the direction Washington DC is going in and grave concerns for the future of our great country,” said Hall.
Hall has served on the County Commission for the last seven years. A supporter of less government, Commissioner Hall works with County staff to downsize county government and enhance accountability of every department. Over $90 million dollars in cuts have been realized in just the last three years.
“The road to real reform in Washington starts at the local level with public servants who clearly understand how to work together to solve problems, maintain infrastructure, jump start local economies and protect the quality of life of residents, all while slashing government spending and saving tax dollars.
I will take my conservative Republican philosophy of fiscal restraint to Washington and help support our Republican Congress in their effort to cut the spending and cut the debt,” Hall said.
Tammy has served the Southwest Florida community for over 30 years through her participation on various non-profit and charity boards and by volunteering thousands of hours to make a difference. In her seven years on the Board of County Commissioners, she has worked to protect our environment, provide for sustainable growth and balance our tax base.
In 2007, Commissioner Hall went to Tallahassee to protect the Caloosahatchee River, working with environmental and agriculture stakeholders to develop the Northern Everglades Estuary Protection Act.
Hall worked tirelessly on the development of protocol for fresh water releases from Lake Okeechobee by working with our Federal Delegation, Army Corp of Engineers, State Agencies, local government and environmental stakeholders. She was successful in assisting in rewriting lake release protocol to give the Caloosahatchee more protection.
An avid supporter of Community Planning, Tammy worked to enhance the Community Planning process for neighborhoods with codes that ensure the protection of individual community character and provide clear direction for future development.
Tammy was born in Wisconsin and moved to Lee County in 1978. Her interest in urban planning and redevelopment lead her in 1989 to spend five years with the City of Fort Myers, three years with the Downtown Redevelopment Agency as their Director of Marketing and two years with the Department of Tourism and Marketing as the Deputy Director.
In 1994, Hall left the City of Fort Myers to pursue her own Marketing Consulting businesses Hall & Company. She worked with local, regional, national and international clients. In 2000, she successfully ran for the Fort Myers City Council Ward One seat and served until 2004. She ran and won her County Commission district 4 seat in 2004.
Commissioner Hall was the first woman to ever serve as the Chair for the Lee County Commission in its 119-year history. In 2006 she became the first woman to ever be re-elected to the Lee County Commission.
