Tallahassee, Fla. – The Associated Industries of Florida Political Action Committee (AIFPAC) today announced its endorsement for Republican Candidate Jason Shoaf in the Special Election for Florida House District 7. AIFPAC supported Shoaf during the Primary of the Special Election to replace Representative Halsey Beshears who resigned to serve as the Secretary for the Florida Department of Business & Professional Regulation.
“The AIFPAC endorses Jason Shoaf to serve as the next representative of Florida House District 7,” said AIF Senior Vice President of State and Federal Affairs Brewster Bevis. “Born and raised in Northwest Florida, and now raising his own family and business in the same community, Jason understands the importance of giving back and growing the local economy for generations to come.”
“Jason also knows how major events can impact a local community and state – Jason has seen firsthand the effects an oil spill and a CAT 5 hurricane has had in his own backyard,” said Bevis. “Jason is the best candidate to propel the community forward. The AIFPAC was proud to support Jason during the primary and is proud to also support him as Northwest Florida voters head to the polls on June 18.”
“One of my top priorities is to increase vocational training in high schools so that the students of North Florida can launch careers that will support their families,” said Shoaf. “And in doing so, we’re providing a workforce to power our economy forward. I am proud to have earned the support of the businesses that power our economy with an endorsement from Associated Industries of Florida.”
Florida House District 7 consists of Calhoun, Franklin, Gulf, Jefferson, Lafayette, Liberty, Madison, Taylor, Wakulla and part of Leon Counties.
AIFPAC was formed to assist in the election of business-friendly candidates to the Florida Legislature. Further, for more than 40 years, AIFPAC has provided an opportunity for Florida’s employers to combine their resources with others in the business community to help shape the political debate in our state.
