Carlos Curbelo represented Florida’s 26th Congressional District from 2015 to 2019. In the House, he was consistently ranked one of the most bipartisan members for his work to build consensus across the aisle on challenging policy questions.
While in Congress, Carlos led on climate policy, immigration reform, and gun safety. He co-founded and co-chaired the bipartisan Climate Solutions Caucus, served in a leadership role in the Problem Solvers Caucus, and led the Brazil Caucus to strengthen the bilateral relationship with Latin-America’s leading economy. In 2017, he was honored by the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation with the New Frontier Award for his work promoting bipartisan cooperation on environmental policy. In 2018, he filed the landmark Market Choice Act, ambitious legislation that would invest nearly a trillion dollars in American infrastructure while reducing greenhouse gas emissions by pricing carbon.
Prior to his election to the U.S. House, Carlos served on the school board for Miami-Dade County, overseeing the fourth largest school district in the country. He completed a fellowship at Harvard’s Institute of Politics in 2019, and serves as a distinguished visiting fellow at Columbia’s Center on Global Energy Policy. Carlos is an analyst for NBC News, MSNBC, and Telemundo, and after departing Congress launched Vocero LLC, a communications and public affairs firm.
