It is with great pleasure that I offer my good friend Judge Michael Scionti my full support and endorsement. I have known Judge Scionti and his family for many years. Judge Scionti has always been fair and just when dealing with others, and as a Circuit Court Judge, he sets the bar for what it means to be a thoughtful, fair-minded public servant. I hope you will join me at the polls in voting to re-elect Judge Michael Scionti.

Luis Viera

Judge Scionti is one of our best Judges here in Hillsborough County. As a local practicing attorney, I know that Judge Scionti’s reputation is second to none for his professionalism, knowledge of the law and respect for litigants and attorneys in his courtroom. Nobody has a better reputation as a Judge – nobody. And his service to our country in uniform is commendable and speaks to his patriotism and love of service. Judge Scionti’s story is an all-American story that has taken him around the world – and we are lucky to have him here with us. Whether in the courtroom or overseas in uniform, this is a man who puts service, community and country first. I am proud to endorse this honorable man for re-election.

DJ Reyes

As the first veteran mentor in Tampa’s Veterans Treatment Court (VTC), I’ve had the honor of not only supporting Judge Scionti for over three years, but also serving with him in Iraq at the onset of the 2003 invasion where he was one of my friend’s brigade staff judge advocate during the march to Baghdad. Now in the courtroom 17 years later, I continue to bear witness to Judge Scionti’s calm, measured, and seasoned leadership – as he successfully directs one of the nationally acclaimed treatment and rehabilitation courts in the Nation. Integrity to the program and fidelity to the veterans – our community demands nothing less. Judge Scionti delivers.
