About the Event
Guest Speaker Dr. Lt. Col. Lisette Bonano
As a retired lieutenant colonel with 28 years of service in the US Army, Dr. Lisette Bonano is running for Florida State House, District 67. Her father, a retired Vietnam veteran, instilled in her and her five siblings the values of selfless service that she exemplifies every day. Dr. Bonano's diverse range of responsibilities in the Army included human resources, civil affairs, psychological operations, intelligence, and inspector general. She was deployed to Iraq to conduct civil engagement with local leaders and served as a US military contractor in Afghanistan, training an Afghan National Army Inspector General team.
Her love for learning and formal education is evident from her academic achievements. Dr. Bonano holds a B. A degree in Special Education, an M.A. degree in International Relations, and an Ed.D degree in Educational Leadership. She is also currently working towards a Ph.D. in Theology. Her dedication to the equitable treatment of all people was evident in her favorite assignment at the Pentagon, where she ensured that our allies in the Western Hemisphere respected the human rights of their citizens.
Her experiences growing up overseas and serving in diverse areas have taught her to listen, appreciate, and relate to people of all backgrounds, colors, and creeds. She is committed to fighting for the needs of the people of Hillsborough County and will always listen to their concerns. Together, Dr. Bonano believes that "we the people" are "more than conquerors" and can achieve great things when we work together.
