MIKE WEINSTEIN WINS JACKSONVILLE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE / WOKV HOB NOB 2012 STRAW POLL
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Mike Weinstein won tonight’s Jacksonville Chamber of Commerce’s Impact Jax / WOKV Straw Poll in his race for the State Senate, District 4 taking well over 50 percent of the votes cast for Republican candidates in the race. The annual Hob Nob Straw Poll is one of largest political events and straw polls in Jacksonville.
“Thank you to all of the voters who participated tonight in the Hob Nob Straw Poll. This reaffirms that Duval County voters want someone who is from Duval County to represent them in the State Senate. Momentum continues to build in our campaign as we look forward to earning the votes of the residents of District 4 in 2012. It is unfortunate that Tallahassee insiders continue to try to buy this election from the people of North Florida. I look forward to discussing with the voters the issues that are important to them such as getting Florida back to work, keeping taxes low and limiting the size of our government.” said Weinstein.
Weinstein presently is a State Representative running for the newly redrawn Senate District 4. He previously served as the Chief Financial Officer for Jacksonville mayors Ed Austin and John Delaney, the Executive Director of the Jacksonville Economic Development Commission, the President and CEO of the Jacksonville Super Bowl Host Committee and past-President of Take Stock in Children, a state-wide non-profit for underprivileged children.
