Fraternal Order of Police endorses Javier Enriquez in HD 114

Javier Enriquez

The Florida State Lodge of the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) is backing challenger Javier Enriquez in House District 114.

Enriquez, a Miami Republican, is trying to unseat Democrat Javier Fernandez, who won the seat in a special election in May of this year.

Now, Enriquez has earned the support of the FOP, a nationwide organization that advocates on behalf of law enforcement officers. FOP represents more than 325,000 members and is made up of more than 2,100 lodges.

“The outstanding men and women in law enforcement who serve our communities day in and day out deserve our gratitude and support,” said Enriquez.

“I’m honored to have FOP’s support in this race, and I look forward to working with them on measures to improve safety and help them do their jobs even better.”

Enriquez graduated from the University of Miami School of Law and works as an attorney, primarily in the area of family law.

HD 114 covers parts of Miami-Dade County including West Miami and Cutler Bay. Both Enriquez and Fernandez are unchallenged in their respective primaries.
