Non-partisan BIZPAC announces 2014 business-friendly candidate endorsements

Bondi ScottThe Business Political Action Committee of Palm Beach County, known as BIZPAC, has announced its candidate endorsements for November’s general election.

As the eyes, ears and voice for businesses in Palm Beach County’s political arena, BIZPAC seeks out business-friendly candidates who appreciate business’ role as the engine that drives the regional economy and caliber of life. The organization does not seek to support one political party over another.

BIZPAC’s endorsements are:

Governor: Rick Scott

Attorney General: Pam Bondi

Chief Financial Officer: Jeff Atwater

Commissioner of Agriculture: Adam Putnam

Florida Senate 32: Joe Negron

Florida Senate 34: Ellyn Bogdanoff

Florida House 82: MaryLynn Magar

Florida House 86: Stuart Mears

Florida House 89: Bill Hager

Palm Beach County Commission District 4: Steven Abrams

Palm Beach County Commission District 6: Melissa McKinlay

Palm Beach County School Board District 4: Tom Sutterfield

 BIZPAC also endorsed candidates who won their races in the primary election. They are:

Florida House 85: Pat Rooney

Florida House 88: Bobby Powell

Palm Beach County Commission District 2: Paulette Burdick

Palm Beach County School Board District 3: Karen Brill

Rep. Powell faces only a write-in opponent in November, virtually assuring his election.

“This is a good group of candidates for business,” BIZPAC Vice President Tom Lynch said. “They look at the issues and they look at the entire picture before they take action. And the ones I have known for a while have a history of showing some courage when there’s a lot at stake.”
