JACKSONVILLE – The Associated Industries of Florida (AIF) today announced its endorsement of Mike Hogan for Mayor of Jacksonville. Known as “The Voice of Florida Business,” AIF represents more than 10,000 members of the state’s business community with many hailing from the Jacksonville area where AIF was founded in 1920.
“Mike Hogan has a proven record of fighting for small business owners and the companies that create jobs for the people of Jacksonville,” said Barney Bishop III, President and CEO of AIF. “Mike Hogan has the support of the Jacksonville business community because he is committed to protecting the free market and fighting excessive regulations that stifle our economy. In fact, when Mike was in the Florida Legislature his historical voting record on business issues with AIF was an astounding 91%! With that proven track record, he is far and away the best leader to fulfill Jacksonville’s vision of economic prosperity.”
Hogan has also been endorsed by numerous business organizations including First Coast Manufacturing Association, the Northeast Florida Builders Association, the Northeast Florida Association of Realtors and the Northeast Florida chapter of the National Association of Industrial and Office Properties.
“Jacksonville’s business owners will lead the way to putting our city back to work,” said Hogan. “I am proud to have the support of AIF and its members.”
