Orlando, FL – Today, State Representative Victor Torres and the International Union of Painters and Allied Trades endorse George Sheldon for Attorney General. The support for George Sheldon for Attorney General continues to gain strong momentum in Orange County.

“We need an Attorney General in Florida who will be the people’s attorney,” said State Representative Victor Torres, “not the attorney for the deep pockets of special interest groups and Rick Scott. The nonsense in Tallahassee must end. George Sheldon has made a career of serving the people of Florida in the state legislature, as Deputy Attorney General under Bob Butterworth, and with the Depart of Children and Families (DCF). George has the experience, integrity, and passion to effectively represent Florida as Attorney General from the day he is elected.”

“As I travel around our great state and stop throughout the I-4 corridor I am overwhelmed by the support my campaign is receiving,” said Sheldon. “I am running for Attorney General because I actually want to be Attorney General. The families of Florida need an attorney on their side, just as I have fought for the justice and protection of others, fairly and impartially my entire life. Our support in Orange County continues to grow and I look forward to representing Orange County as their Attorney General.”

Before announcing his candidacy for Florida Attorney General, George Sheldon served as Acting Assistant Secretary for the Administration for Children and Families under the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). Prior to joining ACF, Sheldon served as the Secretary of the Florida Department of Children and Families (DCF). As Secretary of the Florida Department of Children and Families, Sheldon co-chaired the State’s Task Force on Human Trafficking along with the head of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. Before his service at DCF, George was Associate Dean for Student and Alumni Services at St. Thomas University School of Law. George also served in the Florida House of Representatives, where he built an eight-year record focusing on the environment and children.
