“I have worked so hard for the people in 72 in environmental, education, women’s rights and infrastructure issues. There is so much more to be done, and I know Drake will do the same and continue giving the district a forceful voice in the legislature. We need his leadership and his dedication. Drake believes in 72 and wants to improve our quality of life. He knows what the lack of leadership in Tallahassee did to bring on our deadly red tide. He now sees, as do I, how a lack of leadership in Tallahassee and Washington can bring on a deadly health crisis in our district, across Florida and the nation. Together we can bring needed leadership during the pandemic on the federal and state level in our area."
-Margaret Good, Current State Representative for House District 72
"I strongly endorse Drake Buckman for Florida House District 72. He will be a champion for public education and has earned my support as someone who will protect the children and families in our community."

"I’m proud to endorse my friend, Drake Buckman for State Representative in District 72. Drake knows this community. He’s called it home for 3 decades, raising his family here and building a successful local business. I know Drake will work across party lines to solve the issues that impact all of us in District 72. That’s why I’m putting my trust in Drake Buckman, to represent me, my family, and my community in Tallahassee."
