State Senator Gary Farmer

State Senator Gary Farmer Senator Gary Farmer, Democrat. Committee Assignments: Community Affairs, Vice Chair Appropriations Subcommittee on Health and Human Services Innovation, Industry, and Technology Rules Joint Committee on Public Counsel Oversight

Gary Farmer has spent almost his entire career fighting for the rights of consumers, fair and just compensation for victims, and the protection of the civil justice system and full access to courts. Gary developed an interest in law when he was in the first grade and his father was attending law school; he would take the bus to the law school and sit in the back of his father’s classes waiting for a ride home. After following in his father’s footsteps and attending the same law school Gary began his legal career with an insurance defense firm where he gained invaluable knowledge and experience in trial law before moving into plaintiff’s work. Over the past decade, Mr. Farmer has been at the forefront of high-profile consumer litigation in Florida and across the country: creating new law and causes of actions for subscribers wrongfully denied coverage by their HMO’s; litigating the “Butterfly Ballot” and absentee voting cases to the Florida Supreme Court during the infamous 2000 election litigation; and representing patients, consumers and employees wronged by various corporations, hospitals and insurance companies’ deceptive trade practices. In the past few years Mr. Farmer served as lead counsel in some of the largest qui tam recoveries in the country’s history involving off-label marketing of pharmaceutical drugs (Eli Lilly, AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson). He has consistently sought to protect the rights of consumers and helped them achieve redress for financial wrongs and bodily injury. Through it all, Mr. Farmer’s motivation has been consistent – protect society the way he would want his wife Stacey and his daughters Hannah and Abigail protected. His devotion to the law is second only to his devotion to his family, without whom his life would be incomplete.

"The law that we're dealing with is patently unconstitutional," said Equality Florida's Public Policy Director, Jon Harris Maurer. "Just having this law on the books is stigmatizing and sends a message that same-sex marriages don't need to be treated the same as opposite-sex marriages."

Thank you to Rep. Adam Hattersley and State Senator Gary Farmer for your leadership in pushing for full LGBTQ equality!

Acting to the fullest extent of my power, I passed Joint Resolution 920 back in 2017 acknowledging the grave injustices perpetrated against Charles Greenlee, Walter Irvin, Samuel Shepherd, and Ernest Thomas, who came to be known as “the Groveland Four.” A full pardon was secured for these four men, but that was not enough.

I would like to thank Senator Geraldine Thompson and Commissioner Nikki Fried for recognizing the grave injustices these men were dealt. #grovelandfour

Florida Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services

Commissioner Nikki Fried was honored to help pardon the Groveland Four — but more action is needed. Today, she was proud to stand with the families, Representative Geraldine Thompson, State Senator Gary Farmer, the Central Florida Urban League, the NAACP Florida State Conference, and other leaders to call for their exoneration.

Our history books should reflect truth: they were falsely accused of crimes they didn’t commit.

SB 7070 educational funding bill. State Senator Gary Farmer just tried to pass a great amendment to strip vouchers for private schools out of this bill but it was defeated along party lines, so sad. This was already rule unconstitutional once. Thank you Senator Tom Lee with the capital outlay monies amendment and revisiting state laws reminding legislators of the laws. Also, saying letting Public Ed to operate with thier hands tied behind thier backs. @Senator Cruz wants to get rid of the phone bonuses and instead give them a salary increase. Senate is giving out a decent amount of money but won't let local school board decided how to spend the money. I thought they were for local control 🤔🤔🤔 I guess that only works for non public schools

Rose are red, violets are blue, courts all say our marriages count, too! On Valentine's Day, let's remember that the "marriage ban" is still in Florida's law - defining marriage as only between a man and a woman and refusing to recognize marriage equality - even though the statute is clearly unconstitutional. Thank you to State Senator Gary Farmer, Senator Jose Javier Rodriguez, Representative Anna V. Eskamani and Representative Adam Hattersley, Florida State House District 59 for sponsoring legislation to repeal the marriage ban language once and for all, and to co-sponsors State Representative Joe Casello, Representative Javier Fernandez (Javier for 114) , Representative Joy Goff-Marcil, State Representative Michael Grieco, Representative Evan Jenne, Representative Amy Mercado, Representative Cindy Polo - Florida House District 103, and
