Mike Giallombardo (R) has been actively campaigning since announcing his intention to run for State Representative in District 77. However, the recent rise in COVID-19 throughout Florida and the world has called for all adequate personnel to combat the further spread.
In a letter to supporters, Giallombardo wrote that “by now we have all seen the impact of coronavirus on our daily lives.”
He explained that “to help prevent its spread and to assist our medical professionals, Governor DeSantis has activated my National Guard unit in support of our state’s emergency management mission.”
“As a result,” he concluded, “we will be postponing all campaigning activities, including the fundraiser at Nevermind Bar and Eatery.”
Giallombardo asserted that “it is my honor to serve our state, and will do everything I can to keep our community safe and healthy.”
As well, he attached a video to letter, which adds further information to how the campaign will be moving forward and how he will be contributing to fighting the spread of the coronavirus in the sunshine state.
It has also been reported that State Rep. Anthony Sabatini (R) has also been called to action as he is a Captain in the Florida National Guard.
