Hillsborough County Commissioner Lesley “Les” Miller, Jr. has endorsed Mariella Smith for the countywide District 5 seat on the Hillsborough County Commission.
“In my years of service on the County Commission, I’ve seen Mariella Smith come forward countless times as a community leader supporting better transportation and transit, and environmental protection,” said Miller. “In 2012, Mariella was appointed to represent our citizens on the County’s Economic Prosperity Stakeholder Committee on which I served as Vice-Chair. On that committee, Mariella worked for a stronger, more diverse economy and a better quality of life in Hillsborough County. As a Commissioner, Mariella will be a strong advocate for good jobs, affordable housing, equality and human rights, so that opportunities to prosper in Hillsborough County will be open to everyone. I fully endorse Mariella Smith and I look forward to working together with her on the Hillsborough County Commission.”
