22 years ago, George came from Eastern Europe with a green card because he wanted to, not as an economic immigrant or refugee. He does not run from troubles; he stays and fight!
George was born in a town on the Southern Bulgarian Black Sea coast. Growing up, his grandfather had a big influence on him as he was a smart and successful business owner until the Communist took everything from him in 1947. After High School, George joined the Military in the Special Forces anti-terrorism unit. He received his master's degree in business management, with studies in organizational behavior and international law, from one of the first private universities in Eastern Europe. During college George became a founder and Vice chair of the Regional Tourism Organization a member of the National Board of Tourism. He did his post-graduation work on Historic preservation and Heritage Tourism in Athens, Greece.
After coming to the US, George ran a successful export business and had achieved his American Dream. But that was taken from him when he was almost killed; shot from the street in his house; left to die; but still alive with a bullet in his head. He doesn't know why God saved him after everyone else had given up on him.
After his recovery George has dedicated his time to help make our society better. He currently serves on the Historic Preservation Board, is a member of the Propeller Club, the Tiger Bay Club, is the Vice Chair of RCL Hillsborough county, a member of HCREC, and other local organizations. George has been very active in many political causes and campaigns and is now ready to serve you directly.

South Tampa Group of volunteers. Excited to be back on the canvassing campaign trail. Direct contact with our residents is the best way to meet and learn of their concerns. People need to meet the candidate and be able to ask questions.
Local elections are important. City Council members will stay here in Tampa. They need to continue meeting with the residents and listening to their concerns. There is always a time to party especially when it is Gasparilla.
