Law & Order
My family moved to Clearwater in 1964 with the hope for opportunity and a brighter future. However, the very reasons that brought my family to Florida and our quality of life are now being threatened by out-of-touch Washington politicians who are failing us.
And that’s why I’m running for Congress.
Growing up in Pinellas County, my parents made sure my siblings and I had every opportunity in the world and instilled in us some simple truths: that common-sense isn’t common, to save for a rainy day, and that I can make a positive difference.
As a husband, father and business owner who grew up locally, I know firsthand the issues our community is facing. Summers in between my years at Clearwater High School, I would split my time between bussing at the New Orleans Oyster Bar and selling sporting goods at Instant Replay in Clearwater Mall. I saved money to ensure I could go to college because I was certain of one thing: no one could take away my education.
I attended law school and then proudly served as a Florida Assistant State Attorney for 5 years where I worked to put dangerous criminals including drug cartel members and child molesters behind bars while also teaching law at the local police academy. I wanted to make a difference so I worked day and night to uphold justice and fight government negligence and corruption.
Now, in my private practice, I continue to do the same – stand up for law enforcement, defend our rule of law, and offer a path of rehabilitation to those who are in their darkest moments.
As a husband and father of three, I’m running for Congress because Clearwater is my home and we need a fighter who will:
I’m a husband, father, local business owner, and political outsider who will stand up and fight to take on the Washington establishment to get our country back-on-track.
I’m Kevin Hayslett, a strong supporter of President Trump, and I would be honored to earn your support.
