Miami Beach, Fla. - Palm Beach County Tax Collector Anne Gannon today announced her support of State Senator Dan Gelber's (D-Miami Beach) campaign to serve as Florida's next Attorney General.

"I served with Dan Gelber and he is the definition of a leader," said Palm Beach County Tax Collector Anne Gannon, who served in the Florida House with Sen. Gelber from 2000-2006. "He has the unique combination of force of personality that brings people together and empathy to be able to understand the needs and struggles of everyday Floridians."

"People are hungry to turn things around in Florida and they want someone with the experience and desire to look out for their interests," said Sen. Gelber. "Florida's next Attorney General needs to be someone that is more than the state's top cop. They must also be the strongest advocate that everyday Floridians have in government, the person they know is worried about their safety and the security of their children, and the person who makes sure that their rights are not being trampled upon. I am ready to be that leader and that voice for all Floridians as their next Attorney General."

Dan Gelber was elected to the State House of Representatives in 2000, serving as the House Democratic Leader from 2006-2008; and elected to the State Senate in 2008. Prior to elected life, Dan spent nearly a decade as a federal prosecutor, working mostly on public corruption, narcotics and civil rights cases, and serving as a top deputy in that office. He was then appointed chief counsel and staff director for the United States Senate's investigations committee where he focused primarily on terrorism and domestic security. Dan is an AV rated attorney and listed in various peer review publications including Best Lawyers in America and Florida's Legal Elite. He and his wife Joan Silverstein make their home in Miami Beach with their three children. For more information about Dan Gelber, please visit
