Testimonials: What Do Citizens and Leaders in the Public and Private Sector Say about Jeff Bergosh's Past Performance and his Qualifications to be Commissioner in District 1?

"Jeff Bergosh has proven himself to be an involved, hard-working board member who asks tough questions and isn't afraid to go against the prevailing winds. He said that "I don't feel entitled to the seat, I have to earn it," and that's how he has gone about the job.  He's been a fiscal conservative from the start."

--   Florida Senate President Don Gaetz, May 2016
