President-Designate Negron Selects Senator Anitere Flores as President Pro Tempore

Stuart —

Florida Senate President-Designate Joe Negron (R-Stuart) today announced his selection of Senator Anitere Flores (R-Miami, Monroe) as Senate President Pro Tempore.

“The role of Senate President Pro Tempore is a significant position of trust and authority,” said President-Designate Negron. “Anitere is a loyal friend and trusted ally.  She also has longstanding relationships with many returning and new Senators. She has a proven ability to work in a bipartisan manner without compromising her own unwavering principles. I have complete confidence in her ability to represent the Senate in this important leadership position.”

Senator Flores represents Senate District 39 which includes Monroe County and portions of Miami-Dade County. She served three terms in the Florida House (2004-2010) and was elected to the Senate in 2010 and reelected subsequently. Senator Flores completed her undergraduate studies at Florida International University and earned a law degree from the University of Florida. Senator Flores and her husband Dustin have two young sons, Máximo and Lucas.

Senator Flores’ appointment would become effective Nov. 22, when the Senate convenes in Organization Session. The President Pro Tempore is formally nominated and elected by the full Senate during the Organization Session.
