Republican Jason Brodeur earned an endorsement from The Florida Chamber on Monday in his pursuit to represent Senate District 9.
The business advocacy group pointed to Brodeur’s track record of reforming our broken legal system and fighting back against job-killing regulations — both of which have earned him a lifetime score of 94 percent “A” on the Florida Chamber’s Legislative Report Card.
“Jason Brodeur has been a relentless champion for local businesses, earning two Distinguished Advocate awards during his time in the Florida House,” said Mark Wilson, President and CEO, Florida Chamber of Commerce. “Jason’s leadership and vision will continue serving Florida well, ensuring we remain competitive and focused on economic growth.”
The latest Florida Chamber statewide poll of likely Florida voters shows that 71 percent support COVID-19 liability protections for businesses that are working hard to protect the health and safety of employees and customers, and they believe the Florida Legislature should pass legislation to provide these safe harbors for job creators.
Brodeur is the only candidate for SD 9 to exhibit the leadership necessary to advance these types of commonsense, pro-business efforts, today’s press release stated.
“During his time in the House, Jason has consistently fought to find long-term solutions to help create jobs and diversify Florida’s economy,” added Nick Catroppo, Vice President of Political Operations, Florida Chamber of Commerce. “We look forward to working with him in the Florida Senate.”
Brodeur, a former state representative from 2010 to 2018, is looking to replace term-limited state Senator David Simmons. He will be taking on Democratic challenger Patricia Sigman this November.
