Who is Jack Seiler?

John P. "Jack" Seiler is an American politician and Mayor of Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Prior to this he was a Democratic member of the Florida House of Representatives, from 2000 to 2008 representing District 92 which is located in Broward County, Florida. He served as mayor, vice mayor and city council member of Wilton Manors, Florida from 1993 to 2000.

Seiler was a candidate to succeed term-limited Jim Naugle in the 2009 mayoral election for Fort Lauderdale, Florida. He was elected February 10, 2009, winning against three opponents with more than 57 percent of the vote, avoiding a run-off election. Analysis of the race suggests Seiler won because of high name recognition and strong fundraising which exceeded $250,000. Seiler was sworn in March 17, 2009. On January 31, 2012, Seiler was reelected with 75.03% of the vote in a three-way race.
