APOPKA, Fla. (FNN NEWS) – Patricia Rumph announced Friday that her campaign for Orange County Commissioner District 2 has received the endorsement of Ruth’s List Florida, a prominent women’s advocacy organization.
Pamela Goodman, Executive Director of Ruth’s List Florida said, “Patricia Rumph is an advocate for safer streets, for stronger communities and a dynamic leader who supports gender equality, women’s reproductive rights, and health care for all. The Ruth’s List community – now tens of thousands of members strong – is proud to support her candidacy.”
Patricia stated, “I am grateful to the grassroots aid Ruth’s List Florida provides Democratic women in Florida. I’m proud to accept their endorsement and the endorsement of the tens of thousands of Ruth’s List members and supporters who believe like I do, that Florida’s leaders should stand up for women and families.
“As a single mom, having lived and worked here my entire life, I understand the concerns of the community—from the working person to the retiree. My commitment is to the citizens-making sure everyone receives the same access to opportunity.”
Patricia faces Antuan T. Bibbs, Frederick Carl Brummer, Mark Allen Byrd, and Christine Moore in the August 28 primary election. If no candidate gets more than 50 percent of the vote, the top two will face off in the November 6 general election.
