Richter praised Fitzenhagen for her passion and commitment to Fort Myers.
“Heather understands the social and economic needs of the community, and has proven through her years of involvement that she is committed to positive change,’’ Richter said. “She will be an excellent representative for the district and I look forward to her election.”
Fitzenhagen said she is grateful for the support of Senator Richter. “Senator Richter has done an excellent job of representing his constituents and Florida, particularly as the Banking and Insurance Committee chair, and I look forward to working with him,” she said.
