Republican gubernatorial candidate Adam Putnam Announces Over 30 Northeast Florida Endorsements

JACKSONVILLE, FL – Adam Putnam announced over 30 endorsements from community leaders and organizations across Northeast Florida. The announcement took place at the Jacksonville Young Republicans monthly meeting. 

“I am honored to have the support of our local elected officials, community leaders and organizations who are the backbone of Jacksonville and Northeast Florida, who keep Northeast Florida thriving,” said Adam Putnam.

“I want someone I can trust, who will support veterans, who will support the agriculture community, that’s my guy – Adam,” said Jacksonville City Council President Aaron Bowman.  “As an elected official I want somebody who is accessible, I want somebody who knows the area and who knows how to work with D.C. but also understands how important it is to work with the local communities, local cities and local county governments. As an economic developer, I see what is happening to the future. Good people who aren’t trained … I like what I hear from Commissioner Putnam. I want somebody who knows the State of Florida inside and out.”

Putnam also shared how he will support law enforcement and work to keep our communities safe as Florida’s next governor.

“Everything I want to talk to you about and what we want to accomplish as a state is only possible if we begin first and foremost with safety and security,” said Adam Putnam. “And that’s why I’m so honored to have the support of Attorney General Pam Bondi and [nearly 50] Florida Sheriffs … to have them all endorsing me and my plan and vision for keeping Floridians safe and building on the fact that we have a 47-year low in our crime rate is critical.”
