Aaron Bean Represents Florida Congressional District 4 in Congress
In addition to serving the people of Northeast Florida in Washington, Aaron Bean is a conservative businessman, a lifelong Republican, a husband, and a father of three whose heart is devoted to public service.
Aaron was elected to Congress on November 8, 2022, and he was sworn into office on January 7, 2023. Currently, he serves on the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, and the Workforce and Education Committee, where he is Chairman of the Early Childhood, Elementary, and Secondary Education Subcommittee. He is also a member of the House Committee on Small Business.
Prior to serving in the 118th Congress, Aaron spent eight years in the Florida Senate, where he presided as the Senate President Pro Tempore and the Chairman of the Appropriations Subcommittee on Health and Human Services. He also proudly chaired the Duval Delegation during his last term in office. During this service, he was known for being a noted advocate for lowering taxes on hardworking Floridians, focusing on pro-business, pro-family initiatives, and supporting the Florida freedom agenda and policies of Governor Ron DeSantis.
Aaron also served eight years in the Florida House of Representatives.
In between serving in the House and the Senate, Aaron opened an insurance agency and eventually rescued a beloved Putt-Putt golf business in the community from going under. Running a local business, Aaron and his wife, Abby, saw first-hand the bureaucratic red tape that many small businesses face. They were proud to be able to get up each day and work hard, employ their neighbors, and be a part of the workforce and business engine that drives the local economy.
From an early age, Aaron knew he wanted to serve his community and work hard for what he believed in. Born and raised in Northeast Florida, Aaron worked his way through college while attending Jacksonville University, where he was selected by his peers to be student body president and later helped start the Young Republicans in Nassau County. After graduating college and marrying his college sweetheart, Abby Bradley, a fifth-generation Clay Countian, Aaron became involved in local businesses where he gained firsthand knowledge of the burden governments place on businesses, especially on small business owners and entrepreneurs. This insight guided him to run for local office, believing government can always do better. Aaron served his local community, while raising a family and running a small business, as a city commissioner in Fernandina Beach and later being elected mayor.
Aaron has worked for UF Health Jacksonville for 13 years in development. Aaron and Abby recently celebrated their 30th wedding anniversary and continue to watch their now-grown children build their own professional and personal lives.
