Rep. Val Demings
Congresswoman Val Demings represents Florida's 10th Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives. Rep. Demings is a lifelong public servant who broke numerous glass ceilings in her rise through the Orlando Police Department and her election to Congress. Today she works on the House Judiciary, Homeland Security, and Intelligence Committees.
