ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, Fla. — Bob Cortes was officially endorsed today by the Florida Chamber of Commerce and was listed in the Florida Chamber of Commerce’s list of Pro-Business candidates. This Pro-Business designation is given to those candidates who are perceived to be strong on economic issues and have a good understanding of how to create jobs in the state of Florida.

“I am honored by another great endorsement, this time by the top business organization in the state,” said Bob Cortes. “Our economic message of bringing more jobs and better schools to our community is one that is good for all of Florida, and I look forward to going to work on that immediately after being elected.”

Bob Cortes is a staunch proponent of free market economics. He believes that less taxes and fees means more jobs for the working families of central Florida and District 30. The Florida Chamber of Commerce’s endorsement further legitimizes Cortes’ standing as the best pro-jobs candidate in this race.
