The construction industry trade group says Mallea’s support for free market
principles makes him the best choice in the race for House District 116.
The Jose Mallea Campaign today announced the endorsement of Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) of Florida, part of a national construction industry trade association that represents nearly 21,000 corporate members. Mallea is running in the special election to fill the District 116 seat in the Florida House of Representatives.
“We are very pleased to endorse Jose Mallea,” said Peter M. Dyga, President and CEO of the ABC Florida East Coast Chapter. “His commitment to the principles of free enterprise and free markets lines up very well with our values. We believe we can count on him to be the kind of advocate for economic growth and increased opportunity we need in Tallahassee.”
ABC represents every segment of commercial construction from general contractors to subcontractors and suppliers. The association promotes lower taxes, free enterprise, reasonable regulation, and is the largest provider in Florida for training in the industry. The Florida East Coast Chapter represents more than 450 member companies between Key West and the Space Coast region, making it the largest commercial construction association in Florida.
“I am honored to have the support of ABC,” said Mallea. “I appreciate their commitment to the principles of freedom and hard work that built this nation. I look forward to working with them to keep Florida’s economy strong and growing.”
