ORLANDO, Fla. – The Ocoee Professional Firefighters Local 3623 is the latest in a growing list of unions endorsing Angel Perry’s campaign for State Representative, District 50, according to a press release by her campaign Friday.
Perry has been a champion for workers’ rights, fair wages and voice for Central Florida first responders for twenty years.
The endorsement from union president Chris Atalski reads in part, “Representing and advocating for workers, tackling Corporate America, and fighting on behalf of the working class shows Angel Perry is a no-nonsense leader who will make great strides in improving the workplaces of District 50.”
“I am honored to have the support of my brothers and sisters in Union Local 3623 representing some of our bravest men and women,” Perry stated. “For two decades, I’ve made it a priority to support our first responders and ensure they can continue to put food on the table for their families. In me, they will have a friend in Tallahassee that already understands them and will work to provide them the resources they need to stay safe while performing their sworn duties serving our community, especially with the added hazards the COVID-19 pandemic presents.”
Perry is running against three other Republican candidates, Christopher Wright, Robyn Hattaway and Yukong Zhao.
Florida House District 50 seat is open for the 2022 election, because incumbent Republican State Representative Rene Plasencia is running for the Senate.
