FL-23: Jared Evan Moskowitz (D)

Campaign Website

Jared Moskowitz was born and raised in Coral Springs and graduated from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. He grew up in a household committed to promoting the values and principles of the Democratic Party, influenced by his father’s work as a Democratic Party Committeeman before his death from pancreatic cancer earlier this year. 

Moskowitz followed his interests in politics and public service to The George Washington University, where he received a degree in political science with a focus on public policy, before attending law school at Nova Southeastern University.

While in law school, he was elected to the Parkland City Commission. Before widespread texting-while-driving laws were being discussed he fought for a local law to ban the practice. During his six years on the City Commission, he was known for his pragmatic focus on public safety and commitment to environmental issues.



Moskowitz was a major voice fighting against Ron DeSantis’s election, but when DeSantis was elected, he asked Jared to become Florida’s Director of Emergency Management. The Florida Democratic Party and Democratic elected officials urged him to take the role and bring Democratic values to a state agency for the first time in 20 years. During his tenure, Jared was responsible for disaster mitigation and recovery, including helping communities after hurricanes and the delivery of recovery funds to counties and cities affected by disasters.

He currently serves as a Broward County commissioner. In this role, he has worked to improve affordability, invest in infrastructure, expand public transportation options, enhance public safety, and address quality-of-life issues on behalf of constituents. He and his wife Leah have two sons.
