Florida police union backs Matt Spritz in HD 89

Florida’s Fraternal Order of Police (FOP), a union that represents thousands of law enforcement officers statewide, is endorsing Attorney Matt Spritz for House District 89.

Spritz, a Boca Raton Republican, is competing with accountant Mike Caruso for the GOP nomination for the seat that covers much of Palm Beach County.

“Matt Spritz has shown an understanding of the needs of his community, and we feel that he is the best choice of candidate to serve the citizens of Florida,” Florida FOP President Robert Jenkins said.

“I’m proud to receive the endorsement of the Fraternal Order of Police,” Spritz added.

“Our local law enforcement officers are some of the hardest working men and women in our community. I am inspired every day by their commitment to service and public safety, and I look forward to working closely with police organizations to help them keep our neighborhoods safe.”

Spritz and Caruso are competing for the Republican nomination to replace Republican state Rep. Bill Hager, who is term-limited.

Ocean Ridge politician Jim Bonfiglio and real estate businessman Ryan Rossi filed to run on the Democratic side. Delray Beach business owner Deborah Gibson elected to run as a non-party affiliated candidate.

HD 89 leans slightly Republican. The primary elections will be held Aug. 28.
