WELLINGTON, Fla. — Wellington Mayor Anne Gerwig on Wednesday announced she is running as a Republican candidate for State representative District 93 in the 2024 election.

Gerwig, 59, is challenging incumbent Democratic State Rep. Katherine Waldron.

“I am running for state representative to bring my many years of experience and knowledge representing Wellington and District 93 to Tallahassee," she said. "No other candidate has the experience I have representing our district."

She said "some of the issues I want to focus on in Tallahassee include, reducing the cost of homeowner insurance, protecting home rule, advancing local transportation initiatives -– to cut down on traffic and congestion, and continuing to be an advocate for education."
