With public service instilled in him from a young age by his parents, Ben Sorensen has dedicated his life to serving others.

Sorensen, the current Vice Mayor of Fort Lauderdale, has served more than 14 years in the U.S. Navy Reserve. He's currently a Lieutenant Commander at U.S. Southern Command, where he works with allies in South and Central America to build strategic intelligence, as well as military and economic partnerships.

Sorensen was first elected to the Fort Lauderdale City Commission in 2018. As Vice Mayor and City Commissioner, he has been a recognized leader on innovative infrastructure improvements, transportation solutions and combatting climate change.

A graduate of Florida's public schools and a former elementary school and high school teacher, Sorensen started his small business to work with Fortune 500 companies and nonprofit organizations to create better leaders and foster enhanced collaboration and empathy within the workforce, leading to greater organizational success.

The decades of public service, community leadership and personal values have put Sorensen in a position to work effectively with others in Congress. He will bring strategic vision and original ideas to real-world problems facing Americans.

Ben and his wife, Anna, who works in the arts, live in Fort Lauderdale with their two young daughters, Alexandra and Louise. Their rescue dog, Ginger, is looking forward to treats on the campaign trail.
