I proudly endorse Kevin Beckner. His experience as a financial planner, his understanding of Hillsborough County and his impeccable judgement and foresight make him the perfect person to serve as Clerk of the Circuit Court.

Kevin Beckner is a trailblazer with a commitment to service and a track record as a champion for fiscal responsibility, inclusion, and historic change in Hillsborough County. I am proud to stand with Kevin as he seeks to continue his journey as the Clerk of our Circuit Court.
Tampa City Council Chair
I’ve known Kevin for many years and consider him to be a friend and mentor. As a County Commissioner, he collaborated with the business community, grassroots organizers, and government agencies to effect lasting change in Hillsborough County. Kevin’s integrity and financial background make him the perfect fit for the Clerk of the Circuit Court and I’m thrilled he’s seeking elected office again. We could not be in better hands.
Political & LGBTQ+ Activist
As Florida’s Insurance Consumer Advocate, I served as our independent watchdog, protecting consumers from price gouging and insurance scams. I watched Kevin Beckner lead the fight for consumers’ rights on the Hillsborough County Commission, exposing bogus claims and tackling insurance fraud. His work with law enforcement on long-needed PIP reform resulted in lower insurance costs for all Floridians, and he convinced his fellow Commissioners to pursue a damages claim against BP Oil, resulting in the largest award of any county in Florida: $28.5 million. Kevin is focused, capable, and determined – he’s exactly who we need as Clerk of the Circuit Court.

As the former Chief Financial Officer for the State of Florida, I know firsthand what skill sets and background are required to effectively run this important branch of government. I have known Kevin Beckner for years and watched him serve with integrity and efficiency while on the board of the Hillsborough County Commission. With his years of public service as a County Commissioner balancing a $4 billion budget and over 17 years as a Certified Financial Planning Professional, Kevin is my choice and the right person to lead Hillsborough into the future as Clerk of the Circuit Courts.
Former Chief Financial Officer, State of Florida
Kevin is smart, honest, and ethical. He cares deeply about good government and he pays attention to details. He is the right person to be Clerk of the Circuit Court.
