Daniel Webster, a family man and small-business owner, has dedicated himself to serving the citizens of Central Florida with honor and integrity. For nearly three decades, he has fought on behalf of Floridaï¿½s hardworking taxpayers and families to advance common-sense reforms and principled policy.
Webster served as the Speaker of the Florida House and Majority Leader in the Senate, working in these leadership roles to shake up the status quo in Florida and pass sweeping reforms that earned him widespread praise from the people of Florida.
From his first day in leadership, Webster worked to reform the way Legislature did business, requiring all proposed laws to meet specific criteria that would determine its effectiveness in benefiting the people of the great state of Florida.
As the first non-lawyer to chair the Senate Judiciary Committee in Florida, Webster led Florida as the only state to pass a constitutional amendment protecting its citizens the landmark Kelo Case (2005) dealing with property rights and governmentï¿½s ability to condemn property.
With his engineering background, Webster found transportation issues quite interesting and he was thrilled to serve as Ranking Member of the Transportation Committee in the Florida House representing Central Floridaï¿½s unique transportation needs. Currently, Webster is working in Congress on the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee to create jobs, improve Floridaï¿½s roads and highways, and find ways to save money by eliminating fraud and abuse.
Websterï¿½s other committee assignment in Congress is on the influential House Rules Committee where he is fighting to bring more transparency to the process and advance a policy environment based on principle, not power.
Known for many things, Daniel Webster still holds his faith, his family, and his principles as his biggest assets.
Webster is married to the former Sandra Jordan of Orlando, and they have six children: David, Brent, Jordan, Elizabeth, John, and Victoria, and six grandchildren. Webster is active in his church, First Baptist Church of Central Florida.
