Meet Mike Perotti
Mike Perotti is a third generation Tampa native and experienced former prosecutor who has dedicated his career to keeping our communities safe. Over his 16+ years with the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office, Mike Perotti has been a proven leader who has focused on incarcerating dangerous criminals who threaten the safety of our children and families, while providing treatment and developmental opportunities for others. Mike Perotti has, and always will, go above and beyond to defend the rule of law in order to keep our families safe and protect the rights of all.
Mike Perotti originally joined the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office as legal counsel in 2001 where he led with a fearless work ethic and a drive to find solutions for the most complex of problems. His no-nonsense approach and broad knowledge within the criminal justice system, eventually led him to the highest operational ranks in the Sheriff’s Office as Major, and then Colonel under Sheriffs David Gee and Chad Chronister, respectively. As a Colonel, Mike managed an annual budget over $40 million dollars and supervised a staff of over 1600, including sworn personnel and civilian staff.
Mike is not a politician. He is a servant leader who believes in accountability and transparency. He is a local son who has built his reputation on dedication and integrity. In addition to his time at the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office, Mike was a founding partner of a successful private sector Tampa-based law firm, and also served as an Assistant State Attorney in Hillsborough County. From taking down dangerous drug dealers and thieves, to championing women’s empowerment efforts against sexual assault, he was a steadfast prosecutor who ensured justice was done and victims were protected. His experience as an effective litigator in both civil and criminal matters has allowed him to achieve countless victories for his clients across a broad spectrum of our legal system; including matters of civil rights, personal injury, supervisory negligence, false arrest, excessive force, and criminal law.
A graduate of Tampa Jesuit High School, Mike Perotti is a proud Double Gator, having earned both his bachelor’s and law degree from the University of Florida. In 2017, he became board certified in security management as a Certified Protection Professional (CPP), a credential held by only a small percentage of individuals working in the protection industry around the world.
Mike Perotti is a dedicated husband and proud father of two daughters, who he credits for motivating him to be a courageous leader who is driven to keep Hillsborough County safe. In his spare time, he enjoys the Florida lifestyle with his family and friends, being on the water and anything else outdoors.
Mike Perotti is running for State Attorney for the 13th Judicial Circuit (Hillsborough County) to ensure every resident has the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
PROTECTING THE RULE OF LAW WITH DIGNITY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL
Ensure Integrity and Accountability in the Criminal Justice System
Our nation’s criminal justice system is strengthened when leaders within it conduct themselves, and their office, with the utmost integrity and are accountable to the citizens who empower them to protect the community and enforce the rule of law.
Protect Victims and Seek Out Justice and Truth
When those in society violate the social contract that is the rule of law, we need a State Attorney who will prioritize justice for the victim and the victim’s well-being before all else.
Promote Equality and Transparency Under the Law
Transparency and data collection within our criminal justice system should be promoted and encouraged so we can root out any bias and ensure for our future generations that justice is truly blind and all members of our community are equal under the law.
Keep Criminals Off the Streets and Defend the Innocent
Our State Attorney must vigorously prosecute dangerous criminals who do harm to our community, while at the same time relentlessly pursuing the truth within all matters.
