BIOGRAPHY

Hillsborough County Supervisor of Elections Craig Latimer was elected to his position in November 2012 and took office on January 8, 2013.  In 2016, he was re-elected to serve a second term in office. 

Supervisor Latimer is the first Supervisor of Elections to earn the Governor's Sterling Award, the highest award for performance excellence in the State of Florida. Governor's Sterling Award recipients are selected based on a rigorous examination and expected to serve as role models, sharing best practices with others in the community.  His vision is to make Hillsborough County the best place in America to vote.

Since 2009, Craig Latimer has led a turnaround in the elections office, restoring integrity, efficiency and confidence in the elections process. His contributions to the office include leadership and accountability, timely and accurate reporting of results, impartiality and nonpartisanship, a renewed commitment to ethics and professionalism, excellent customer service, and responsible and conservative stewardship of taxpayers’ funds.

Public service has always been a part of Craig Latimer's job description. Before working for the Supervisor of Elections office, he served and protected the community for 35 years in law enforcement, retiring as a Major from the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office in 2008. Supervisor Latimer also serves our community as a volunteer. He is on the board of the Central Florida Behavioral Health Network and the Tampa Catholic High School Board of Trustees, as well as Chair Emeritus of BAYS Florida and Honorary Commander for the 6th Medical Group at MacDill Air Force Base.
