House District 47 Democratic nominee Beth Tuura is releasing a new internet video highlighting her background as a glass ceiling-breaking woman in TV production and declaring her determination to continue fighting.

The 30-second spot, “Determination,” discusses her rise to success from being one of the first women in sports TV production booths to someone who has won three Emmy awards running a successful independent TV production business contracted to do events such as the Olympics. It then turns to Central Florida politics, focusing specifically on fracking and Planned Parenthood.

“I’m determined to fight for a better Florida. I will stand up to state officials who threaten our environment with fracking, I will protect a woman’s access to safe and affordable health care, and I will stand up to discrimination of any type to make sure everyone in our community feels safe,” Tuura declares.

She is facing Republican incumbent state Rep. Mike Miller in HD 47, which covers north-central and northeast Orange County.
