TALLAHASSEE — On a guided tour of Florida's Capitol with her new colleagues, Hillary Cassel was all smiles.The Dania Beach attorney won a very competitive Democratic primary to capture an open seat in the Florida House, where she will represent District 101, which includes Hollywood, Dania Beach and parts of Hallandale Beach and Davie.Cassel was in Tallahassee this week to be sworn in as one of 41 new faces in the 120-member House, where lawmakers received their laptop computers, access cards, office assignments and tutorials on filing bills and floor debate — and learning the circuitous route to the main committee hearing rooms.
