Al Lawson rolls out four more re-election endorsements, including two Jacksonville locals

Congressman Al Lawson, a Tallahassee Democrat representing Florida’s 5th Congressional District, scored on Thursday four key endorsements ahead of his August primary clash with former Jacksonville Mayor Alvin Brown.

Two of them were local to Jacksonville: the Laborers International Union of North America (LiUNA) Local 360 and the Jacksonville Brotherhood of Firefighters, both meaningful given that each group would have experienced Brown’s leadership for four years.

These Jacksonville locals join the local Fraternal Order of Police and Jacksonville Association of Fire Fighters in backing the incumbent.

As well, the Sierra Club and the American Postal Workers Union backed Lawson over Brown.

“I am grateful to have the support of such an array of community organizations who work to ensure that our families are safe, our environment is protected and our cities run smoothly,” Lawson said. “They do so much for us; I am proud to have the opportunity to work on their behalf in Congress.”

    1. That’s the problem with society today.
      People are more focused on money than creating change and doing the right thing.

      I think it’s extremely noteworthy when thousands of government workers and key community members are all saying “I believe in Al Lawson.” Clearly he’s doing things right.

  1. I’m tired of these politicians focusing simply on money. I’d rather a candidate pushing endorsements that matter. Like the LGBTA organization. With lawson at least we know he supports firefighters, police, fed/state workers and LGBTA. At least lawson never turned his back on them the way Brown did.
