Palm Beach County’s most competitive state House race taking shape

by George Bennett | December 3rd, 2013

Democrat David Silvers, who is hoping to topple Republican state Rep. Bill Hager of Boca Raton in a coastal swing district, says he raised about $19,000 from contributors and kicked in $5,000 of his own money during his first three weeks as a state House candidate.

Democrats consider Hager’s District 89 seat their best opportunity in Palm Beach County to unseat a Republican. The GOP holds a narrow voter registration edge of 36 percent to 34.4 percent in the district, which includes Boca Raton and oceanfront communities from the Broward County line to Singer Island.

Hager says he raised about $7,500 in November, which would bring his overall total to about $79,000.

Fundraising reports covering November are due next week.

Silvers, 34, is director of product development at Tekno Books, which markets sci-fi, technology thrillers and other electronic books as a subsidiary of Boca-based Hollywood Media Corp. In a press release today, he accuses Hager of being a “career politician” and of being unwilling to vote against Republican leadership in Tallahassee.

Hager, a former insurance executive who also served on the Boca Raton city council, says: “I’m happy to have competition. I think it’s healthy.”
