John Newstreet is a veteran, a conservative and a leader. He brings a career of service as a business, community, and veterans advocate.
John, a native Floridian, grew up in a family of ten – and sometimes eleven children! The Newstreets were also a foster family. Learning to navigate nine siblings and sharing primarily one bathroom is one reason why John has been successful professionally at bringing people together for a common goal.
John served in the U.S. Coast Guard, graduated from the University of Central Florida and worked as a financial planner before being called back into service as the Florida director of the American Legion. His work for veterans later earned him a job with then U.S. Senators Mel Martinez and Marco Rubio. Today, John is the CEO of the Kissimmee/Osceola County Chamber of Commerce.
John’s charitable and community work includes Boy Scouts of America, Give Kids the World, county emergency operations, and several others. He resides in the Dr. Phillips area, enjoys and values Florida’s outdoors and attends Holy Family Catholic Church.
When Representative Eric Eisnaugle was recently appointed as a Judge, many business and community leaders turned to John because of his record of service, his conservative values and his ability to get things done.
