Northeast Florida Builders Association rolls out endorsements

On Thursday, the Northeast Florida Builders Association (NEFBA) endorsed candidates in Northeast Florida races.

“Endorsements are based on a candidate’s proven record or expressed commitment to supporting the housing and construction industry in the best interests of the community and the economy,” read the statement from NEFBA.

Of interest are endorsements for open seats. In House District 11, Sheri Treadwell got the nod. In HD 12, Mark MacLean got NEFBA backing. Leslie Jean-Bart scored the endorsement in HD 14. Jason Fischer was NEFBA’s choice in HD 16, and Leslie Dougher in HD 19.

Moving to down-ballot races, Angela Corey scored NEFBA backing in the 4th Circuit State Attorney race. Warren Jones and Greg Tison got NEFBA backing in their Duval County School Board races. And, interestingly, Kathy Burns got the nod over Rep. Janet Adkins in the contentious Nassau County School Superintendent race.
