Jason Fischer draws high-profile Duval Republicans for HD 16 fundraiser June 29

Some of Jacksonville’s most influential Republicans will appear at a fundraiser next week to support Jason Fischer in his bid for Duval County House District 16.

The afternoon reception begins Monday, June 29 at 5:00 p.m. at the Epping Forest Yacht Club, 1830 Epping Forest Drive in Jacksonville.

With nearly 40 hosts listed, the event will feature a number of high-profile GOP luminaries, including State Sens. Rob Bradley and Travis Hutson; state Rep. Travis Cummings; former Education Commissioner Jim Horne; John Rood, the former Ambassador to The Bahamas; lobbyist Mary Fiorentino and GOP operative Susie Wiles. Also in attendance will be Fel Lee and Scott Shine, who each served with Fischer on the Duval County School Board; Ronnie Fussell, the Duval County Clerk of the Circuit and County Courts; and Kathleen Shanahan, the one-time chief of staff to former Gov. Jeb Bush.

For the August 2016 GOP primary, Fischer— the youngest person ever elected to the Duval County School Board – will face Republican Dick Kravitz for the district that includes downtown Jacksonville and most of Duval County. So far, the race has not drawn a Democratic challenger.

The Maverick Political Action Committee recently named Fischer to its annual “Future 40 Award,” choosing him as one of the future Republican leaders in politics.

RSVPs are with Melissa@thefiorentinogroup.com  or (904) 358-2757.
