TAMPA, Fla. — Pam Bondi, Republican nominee for Florida Attorney General, today accepted the endorsement of the Florida Optometric Association. The association commended Bondi’s commitment to make Florida a safer place and to encourage small businesses to locate and grow in the state.
The Florida Optometric Association is focused on advancing and promoting the quality, availability and accessibility of primary eye care and related health care of Florida’s citizens. The Association also represents the profession of optometry and seeks to enhance and promote the independent and ethical decision-making of its members and to assist and enable optometric physicians to practice their profession so as to ensure the highest standards of patient care.
“As Attorney General, my top priority will be the safety, jobs and constitutional rights of Floridians, and I am proud to have the support of the Florida Optometric Association,” said Bondi. “I will be ready on day one to continue to stand up for our state’s doctors who are deeply concerned about the availability of a quality health care for Florida’s patients.”
Bondi is a career prosecutor and fiscal conservative who believes in less government and lower taxes and has spent the past 18 years prosecuting all types of criminal activity, including domestic violence, drug trafficking, theft, gang-related crimes and murder.
