Kayser Enneking, MD, grew up in Gainesville, Florida and is a graduate of Gainesville High School. She and her husband, Mark Scarborough, MD are lifelong friends and both graduates of the UF College of Medicine. After a residency in Texas and fellowship at Harvard, they moved back to Gainesville, where they work for the University of Florida and started a family.
Kayser has been a leader at the national and local level advocating for improving quality and efficiency of our health care systems. Her work at UF Health as a practicing physician and health care leader have strengthened the quality of care provided to patients in this district. As a community leader, Kayser has visited communities throughout North-Central Florida and saw first-hand the disparities in our health care system.
Now, Kayser is running for the Florida State House because she believes improvements to our health care system start with making sure everyone has access to quality health care. That starts with expanding Medicaid in our state. She understands that leadership is about guiding change, not just announcing something doesn’t work. Her mission now, as it always has been, is to improve the lives those she serves.
Two decades of a Republican trifecta in Tallahassee has failed to improve the lives of Floridians; it’s time for new leadership in the legislature.

Ensure every family can afford health care
There are few Representatives with any knowledge of health care delivery systems, and because of this Florida is ranked 47th in the nation in health care access and affordability. It is time for leaders in Tallahassee who understand how to deliver quality health care.
The rejection of Medicaid expansion by Tallahassee politicians prevented over 800,000 Floridians from getting health care, hurt rural hospitals and nursing homes and cost Florida good-paying jobs in health care.
As your Representative, I will work to expand Medicaid and lower health care premiums for our families. I will make sure all families get the care they need.
Help Create More Jobs Worth Working
I believe that too many families are working hard for too little. People who work full time jobs should able to afford to raise a family. That’s why I support raising the minimum wage and expanding access to affordable child care.
But we also need to do more for middle-class families who are struggling as well. That’s why I will get rid of taxpayer handouts to special interests and use that money to help small businesses grow and to incentivize businesses for giving workers much deserved raises.
Give Every Child a Great Education
Over the last two decades Tallahassee Republicans have neglected public schools and stolen tax dollars from public schools to fund unaccountable, for-profit schools. These irresponsible actions have led to our schools continuing to be underfunded and to Florida being ranked 46th in the nation in teacher pay.
Kayser will make public education funding a priority in Tallahassee again, raise teacher pay, and ensure that our teachers get the support they need. Every child has the right to get a great education from a public school, and our public schools should be preparing our children for success.
Putting the Environment Ahead of Polluters
Kayser will increase funding for springs protection and restoration, ban fracking in Florida, block the pumping of sewage water into our drinking water and reduce the pollution causing algae blooms and killing wildlife across our state.
Stand Up for Florida Families, Not Special Interests
Most importantly, I’m running to clean up Tallahassee, which these days is run by lobbyists and the special interests that fund politician’s campaigns. I’ll give the power back to Floridians and work everyday to better the lives of our families.
