- The Florida Professional Firefighters (FPF) are backing AG Ashley Moody’s re-election campaign
- Moody will face Democrat Aramis Ayala in November
The Florida Professional Firefighters (FPF) has endorsed Attorney General Ashley Moody for re-election.
On behalf of the more than 26,000 Florida Professional Firefighters and Paramedics, I am proud to announce our membership’s endorsement of Attorney General Ashley Moody for re-election,” said Florida Professional Firefighters President Wayne “Bernie” Bernoska. “No stranger to the needs of Florida’s first responders, Attorney General Moody has proven that she is willing to protect Florida’s firefighters, and we are glad to have her on our side fighting for us. This endorsement for her re-election is one way we are able to show our appreciation and support.”
Moody, a fifth-generation Floridian, attended the University of Florida where she earned her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in accounting in addition to her law degree. She later attended Stetson University College of Law earning a Masters of Law in International Law.
She began her legal career with the law firm of Holland & Knight where she practiced commercial litigation. She would later join the United States Attorney’s Office prosecuting drug, firearm, and fraud offenses, before becoming the youngest judge in Florida when she was elected Circuit Court Judge of the Thirteenth Judicial Circuit in Hillsborough County in 2006.
Moody was elected as Florida’s 38th Attorney General in 2018.
In a news release, Moody thanked the association, which boasts a membership of over 26,000 firefighters and emergency medical services personnel, for supporting her campaign.
“I am extremely proud to have the Florida Professional Firefighters’ endorsement and support. Their membership – including so many firefighters, paramedics, and EMTs across the state – works hard to ensure they are ready in a crisis to serve and protect their fellow Floridians. As Attorney General, I look forward to making sure our decisions and policy support them in their mission driven, lifesaving work,” said Moody.
Following last month’s primary, Moody will face Democrat Aramis Ayala in November.
