About Dorothy Hukill


As a leader in the Florida Legislature, Dorothy worked to balance the state’s budget without raising taxes. Despite a $1.8 billion budget shortfall this year, Dorothy voted to increase K-12 education spending by over $1 billion while cutting wasteful spending. Additionally, Dorothy has voted for the largest property tax cut in state history and opposed hundreds of millions of dollars in fee increases for Florida families.

Dorothy lives in Port Orange and is the proud mother of Jonathan Hukill.
