Meet Wilton

Family Man.  Business Man.  Policy Leader.


Wilton knows that America is only as strong as its families. That’s why as our State Senator, Wilton has been a strong and consistent voice for the issues that matter most to our families.



Government is just too big, and all too often puts its hands where they don’t belong. In Tallahassee, Wilton protects us from overregulation and fights to keep government overreach out of our lives.


Growing up on a farm in rural Pasco County, Wilton learned to work hard and take responsibility. He’s a proud farmer and business owner, and he is dedicated to teaching his children these values.

Senator Wilton Simpson is a Job Creation Champion.

As a small businessman, Wilton has employed hundreds of people in our community and he understands that creating an environment where businesses can thrive is vital to our economy.
