Women’s GOP club welcomes State Rep. Anthony Sabatini as September guest speaker


The Northwest Orange Republican Women Federated will host guest speaker Anthony Sabatini, Florida state representative, on Thursday, September 16, at the Hilton Garden Inn, 580 E. Main Street, Apopka.

Rep. Sabatini was elected to the Florida House of Representatives in 2018, representing District 32, a district encompassing most of Lake County. In his first term, five bills were signed into law by Gov. Ron DeSantis. These bills dealt with private property rights, government programs, local government, economic issue, and veterans’ issue.

“He has sponsored and introduced legislation to crack down on big-tech censorship, prevent election fraud, end illegal immigration, protect the second amendment, ban transgender men from competing in girls’ sports, and create term limits,” a NORWF spokeswoman said.

Sabatini was born in 1988 and moved to Lake County the following year. He graduated Eustis High School in 2007. He then attended the University of Florida, graduating magna cum laude in 2012 while commissioning as an infantry officer in the Florida Army National Guard.

He graduated from the University of Florida Law School in 2017, where he served on the Journal of Law and Public Policy and clerked for then Chief Judge Alan Lawson of the Fifth District Court of Appeal – currently a Justice of the Florida Supreme Court. He is currently a sole practitioner attorney focusing on property and constitutional law cases with offices in Clermont.

He is married to his wife Francheska, an attorney and the elected Republican state committeewoman for Lake County, Florida. They reside in Howey-in-the-Hills.
