TALLAHASSEE INSIDERS

 

Steve Uhlfelder
Tallahassee, 58, Owner, Uhlfelder & Associates
When Uhlfelder talks, people in Tallahassee listen. Although he has a gold-plated list of lobbying clients, including American Express, Tenet Healthcare and UPS, Uhlfelder is best known for his high-profile role in education. He is a member of the Florida Board of Governors and was a leader in the efforts to obtain $23 million in funding for pre-K programs in the state. In August, Gov. Jeb Bush tapped Uhlfelder to serve as volunteer CEO of the steering committee for the Florida Hurricane Relief Fund, a not-for-profit similar to the We Will Rebuild effort after Hurricane Andrew. Uhlfelder’s clout comes from his connections on both sides of the political aisle. A Democrat and University of Florida-trained lawyer, he switched his allegiance to George W. Bush in 2000, co-chairing Democrats for Bush.
