District 44: Democrat
With so many incumbent House members from the Tampa Bay area not seeking re-election, voters have an opportunity to send some fresh faces to Tallahassee.

Glenn Claytor, a 70-year-old retired lawyer and lifelong Democrat, reminds voters he has the life experience and mind-set to serve voters better than Robert Schenck, his 31-year-old Republican opponent.
He's right. Voters in House District 44 - covering parts of Pasco, Hernando and Sumter counties - who want depth, zeal and independence in their elected representative should support Claytor. He talks of legislators who are overly influenced by special interests and reliant on "ideological mantras." Schenck falls into that latter category, robotically backing Republican positions and setting his sights on the state House before fulfilling his first four-year term on the Hernando County Commission.
Claytor promises that the first bills he introduces will attempt to stabilize the property insurance crisis, manage growth, increase funding for education and protect the environment. He is well grounded because of his background as an attorney, developer and casualty insurance specialist.
In Florida House District 44, the Times recommends Glenn Claytor.
