Meet Julie Jenkins

Julie and her husband Dan have been residents of Tampa for more than thirty years. They raised two children, Sam and Max, here in Tampa and reside in the Bel Mar Shores area with their four-legged children, Mika, and Johnny Cash. Julie does marketing for her family’s small business. Prior to that, Julie successfully promoted Tampa Bay and Florida to both corporate and leisure markets for over twenty years working for both Holiday Inn Hotels and Virgin Atlantic Airways. During this time, she served on many travel and charity event committees to make Florida a great destination and community.

After the travel industry, Julie turned her attention to community oriented philanthropy. She was the Director of Development for St. Peter Claver Catholic School for five years and Associate Director of Development for The Children’s Home for another three years. Julie worked hard to increase charitable donations to these important community resources.  

Julie is a graduate of Venice High School in Venice, FL. She attended Saint Leo University, graduating with a degree in Political Science.  She was elected as the first female student body president in the school’s history. After college, Julie worked as a governmental affairs intern for U.S. Congressman Buddy McKay in Washington, D.C.

Julie is or has been active in numerous community organizations, including the League of Women Voters, Women in Tourism, Sierra Club, the Alumni Board for St. Leo University, Airline Sales and Marketing Executives, Rotary Club, as well as serving on the PTA committees of her children’s schools; Dale Mabry, Coleman, and Plant. She is a member of St. Patrick’s Catholic Church.

Julie and her husband Dan co-founded and led the Courier City (North Hyde Park) Neighborhood Crime Watch for 5 years to successfully bring neighbors together, clean up alleys and dilapidated homes, and improve neighborhood safety.  She continued this work with neighbors as co-president of Bel Mar Shores Neighborhood Association in 1998. Julie started the first Halloween Parade which continues to this day 20 years later!

On The Issues

Environment

Environment

Our environment is our economic driver. We must ensure clean water and air.

  • Invest in a resilient coastline program so our homes will not be under water and our flood insurance premiums do not go up
  • Bring business leaders and environmental activists to the table to deliver common-sense solutions to our state’s environmental crises
  • Advocate for All For Transportation funds to build sustainable infrastructure like safer roads, bike/pedestrian access and mass transit

Healthcare

Healthcare

All Floridians should have access to quality, affordable health care.

  • Expand Medicaid in the state by finally accepting federal funding -- which our taxes have already paid into
  • Lower prescription drug prices

Education

Education

I support all opportunities and options for children in education with the appropriate oversight, regulation and accountability that ensures a quality education is provided and an accountability of taxpayer dollars.

We must provide traditional public schools and teachers economic support comparable to the invaluable benefit they provide our nation.

This will ensure Florida has:

  • prepared students for the future
  • an educated workforce
  • a strong economic environment to attract business growth

Gun Safety

Gun Safety

Pass sensible gun safety reforms.

  • Ban Military Style Assault weapons
  • Implement better background checks, stronger Red Flag Laws and close loopholes
