About John Paul Alvarez

Raised in a loving middle-class family, John learned the importance of personal initiative and perseverance from his grandmother, a small business owner, and from a mother and father who stressed education as the foundation for future achievement.

John Paul Alvarez Teacher - Education

Following a strong high school career, John worked his way through Broward Community College, and then the University of Central Florida, which awarded him a Bachelors Degree in Public History in 2009. Within a year he fulfilled his dream of public service through Education, gaining teacher certification.

Following his first year as a public school teacher, John won an Excellence in Teaching award. Now, he seeks to expand his public service contribution and success, by representing District 100 in the Florida State Legislature.

Community Involvement

John has volunteered his time and talents for years to make positive, progressive change in Florida. His civic, political and community activism includes:


•    Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD)
•    Congregation Etz Chaim
•    Hollywood Beach Democratic Club
•    Dolphin Democrats
•    Broward Teachers Union
•    The Humane Society

People Over Politics

Corporate cash and back-room deals have shaped Florida state government and public policy for far too long. Democrats and all Floridians deserve better than politicians like Gov. Rick Scott who treat public service like private enterprise.

John Paul Alvarez is different. He’s not another longtime lawyer or career political insider. He’s an inspirational, “no strings attached” public servant, dedicated to giving voters a new choice and dynamic new voice in Tallahassee.
