Meet Wilton.

Family Man.  Business Man.  Policy Leader.

Business-Minded Family Man

Wilton Simpson lives in Trilby with his wife Kathy and their son Wilton Jr. His daughter Lauran and her husband Kenten are proud parents of Addy, born in May of 2014, and Emy, born in May of 2017. Wilton is an entrepreneur and a hard-working business leader. He is the head of Simpson Environmental Services, Inc., which specializes in asbestos removal, mold remediation, duct cleaning and general contracting. Simpson also owns and operates Simpson Farms, Inc., an egg-laying operation home to over one million chickens that supply eggs for Florida’s families through supermarkets all over the state.

 

Community Leader

Wilton Simpson has served on the Pasco-Hernando Community College Board of Trustees, as Chair of the Pasco County Fair Association, and has strongly supported the Boys and Girls Club and the Dade City downtown redevelopment efforts. Simpson was the Chair of the Pasco County Farm Bureau, a member of the Farm Bureau State Board, and served as the Chair of the Pasco Economic Development Council. Wilton has volunteered as a Chairman for Habitat for Humanity, Dade City Kiwanis Club, and the San Antonio Dixie Youth League. He is a 2002 graduate of Leadership Pasco, a past board member of the Dade City Chamber of Commerce, and a member of the West Pasco, Hernando, and Sumter County Chambers of Commerce.

 

Effective Legislator

Senator Simpson was first elected to the state Senate in 2012 where he served as the chairman of the Community Affairs Committee until 2016. He was reelected subsequently and currently serves on the Appropriations Committee, Education Committee, Rules Committee, Appropriations Subcommittee on Transportation, Tourism, and Economic Development, and the Joint Legislative Budget Commission. He was appointed in November of 2016 to serve as the Senate Majority Leader of the Republican Caucus. Among his many legislative accomplishments are the Everglades Restoration Act, which will provide for the continued restoration and protection of this national treasure; the Natural Gas Vehicle Act, which has paved the way for increased usage of cleaner burning natural gas while creating Florida jobs; the Military Protection Act, which enhanced penalties for those who specifically target members of the military and their families; and the Consumer Water Protection Act, which gave consumers a clear process if their utility company has not been responsive when there are water quality concerns.

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.
