FL-04: Aaron Bean (R)
Aaron Bean is a conservative businessman, a lifelong Republican, a husband, and father of three from Northeast Florida who truly believes his heart is devoted to public service.
From an early age, Bean knew he wanted to serve his community. Born and raised in Northeast Florida, he worked his way through college while attending Jacksonville University, where he was selected by his peers to be student body president and later helped start the Young Republicans in Nassau County. After graduating college and marrying Abby Bradley, a fifth-generation Clay Countian, he became involved in local businesses.
He served his local community, while raising a family and running a small business, as a city commissioner in Fernandina Beach and later being elected mayor. As he learned the ropes of local government and how all levels of government can impact someone’s day-to-day life, he decided to run for state office.
He served eight years in the Florida House of Representatives, including the first six years during Governor Jeb Bush’s term.
He opened an insurance agency and eventually rescued a small putt-putt golf business in the community from going under.
He has spent the last eight years serving in the Florida Senate, most recently as the president pro tempore. He has worked for UF Health Jacksonville for 13 years in development.
