Guido is the only Democratic candidate who was born and raised in Florida’s 21st district. He grew up in Palm Beach County, and has four generations of family living here. He attended Palm Beach Central High School and graduated from American Heritage High School. Guido is also the first Congressional candidate in our district to refuse campaign donations from corporations because Guido believes in only being held accountable by the voters he represents.
Since 2016, Guido has worked in the United States House of Representatives as a foreign affairs and defense advisor, and most recently as a Legislative Director. Guido has worked in pushing the needle forward on many issues during his time in Congress, including: US-Israel cooperation, national security initiatives related to North Korea, indigenous rights, veterans’ health care, and environmental protections.
Guido enlisted in the Navy Reserve in 2015 from Delray Beach. Guido spent his first few years as an enlisted Sailor, where he was trained in radars and navigation as an Operations Specialist and worked in military law enforcement, and later commissioned as an Officer. He has served in a unit as a member of a Navy Security Force.
Guido graduated from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem with a Masters’ Degree in Middle Eastern studies and from American University with a Bachelor's degree in International Studies. He has also spent time studying in Russia, Jordan, and Israel to learn Russian, Arabic, and Hebrew.
Guido grew up in Wellington as one of four children. In his youth, Guido loved fishing, boating, and camping all around South Florida. He was a member of Boy Scout Troop 125 in middle and high school. While he still loves fishing and camping, he also enjoys martial arts, yoga, and cooking.
