Momentum for Toby Overdorf in the race for House District 83 continues with the
endorsement of the Professional Firefighters and Paramedics of St. Lucie County.
The Toby Overdorf Campaign today announced the endorsement of the Professional Firefighters and Paramedics of St. Lucie County. Overdorf, a Republican, is running for the District 83 seat in the Florida House of Representatives, currently held by Gayle Harrell, who faces term limits this year. The endorsement follows support for Overdorf from numerous organizations and elected officials in recent weeks.
“Toby Overdorf is the right choice for House District 83,” said Jimmy Pucci, Legislative Affairs Coordinator of the Professional Firefighters and Paramedics of St. Lucie County. “He knows our community well and is committed to making public safety a priority. We look forward to working with him.”
The Professional Firefighters and Paramedics of St. Lucie County is part of the International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF), a labor union representing professional fire fighters and emergency medical services personnel in the United States and Canada. With more than 300,000 members in more than 3,200 affiliates, IAFF members protect 85 percent of the U.S. population.
“I’m very honored to have the support of the firefighters and paramedics,” said Overdorf. “Public safety is one of government’s primary responsibilities, and I’m grateful for these first responders who work so hard to protect us and keep us safe. We owe it to them and to our communities to make sure they are adequately resourced for the responsibilities entrusted to them.”
Overdorf has also been endorsed by the Florida Realtors® PAC and Associated Builders and Contractors Florida East Coast Chapter. In addition, he has received endorsements from several local elected officials, including Congressman Tom Rooney; Stuart City Commissioners Becky Bruner and Troy McDonald; Port St. Lucie City Councilmembers John Carvelli and Stephanie Morgan; Port St. Lucie Vice Mayor Shannon Martin; Martin County Commissioner Doug Smith; and Town of Ocean Breeze Council President Ken De Angeles.
Overdorf is a longtime Treasure Coast resident and business owner, running on a platform of pro-growth economic policies that promote job creation, greater economic prosperity, and the completion of necessary environmental restoration projects.
