Albritton continues to receive widespread support across District 26 with newest endorsements from Bartow Mayor James Clements and Commissioner Trish Pfeiffer
The Ben Albritton for Senate Campaign today announced the endorsements of Bartow Mayor James F. Clements and Commissioner Trish Pfeiffer, immediate past mayor. They join a number of community leaders and elected officials throwing their support behind Albritton’s bid for Senate District 26. The seat is currently represented by Denise Grimsley, who is running for Commissioner of Agriculture.
“Ben Albritton has served in the Florida House with vision and integrity,” said Mayor Clements. “He’s been there for Bartow when we truly needed his support. I’m confident he’ll continue to deliver for us in the Florida Senate.”
Clements holds Seat 1 At Large on the Bartow City Commission. First elected in 2006, his current term runs through April of next year.
“In today’s world of political uncertainty, fear of escalating tensions, and self interest, it is important to put our faith in someone that has the moral and ethical heart that will represent us and not forget about our interest here at home,” said Pfeiffer. “I may not always agree with the eventual outcomes of the tough decisions that political leaders are charged with making, but a well informed, educated leader and a candidate that remembers where he came from and who he represents makes it an easy choice. That is why I am endorsing Ben Albritton for the Florida State Senate.”
Pfeiffer represents Seat 4 At Large on the Bartow City Commission and is the immediate past mayor. She took office in May of 2014, and her current term expires in April of 2020.
“I’m grateful for the support of dedicated public servants like Mayor Clements and Commissioner Pfeiffer,” said Albritton. “I look forward to working with them and other local leaders across District 26 to make sure issues of importance in their communities receive the attention they need and deserve in Tallahassee.”
In 2010, Albritton was elected to the Florida House of Representatives, where he has been a staunch advocate for entrepreneurs and children in Florida’s foster care system. He is also known for his strong conservative record on Second Amendment rights and protection for the unborn. He is the Chair of the House Agriculture and Natural Resources Appropriations Subcommittee and Vice Chair of the House Natural Resources and Public Lands Subcommittee. He also sits on the Appropriations Committee, the Agriculture and Property Rights Subcommittee, and the Government Accountability Committee, and he currently serves as the Chair of the Polk County Legislative Delegation.
