Call it another example of “building something that lasts.” Those close to the political operation of Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry deny there is a slate of candidates. But a close look at the 2019 endorsements of the Northeast Florida Builders Association suggests a strong alignment between the interests of Curry and construction. In one race after […]

The Northeast Florida Builders’ Association released a raft of endorsements for state House and Senate Thursday, choosing incumbents in every regional race but two. NEFBA went with a Democratic primary challenger, Paula Wright, over incumbent Kim Daniels in House District 14. This could boost Wright’s insurgent bid, one where Daniels has a 10-1 cash on hand advantage […]

On Thursday, the Northeast Florida Builders Association rolled out its general election endorsements. The NEFBA slate is heavy on incumbents and people either running unopposed or poised to win safe elections. The most interesting endorsement: Reggie Fullwood, the indicted incumbent in House District 13, instead of Republican pastor Mark Griffin. Fullwood was the only Democrat to get the […]

Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry pitched his pension-tax referendum to the Northeast Florida Builders Association Wednesday. A day later, NEFBA’s unconditional and unanimous support for the Aug. 30 plebiscite came through via a press release. “We appreciate Mayor Curry’s leadership on this important issue.

The Northeast Florida Builders Association, as it does every election cycle, is making endorsements in House races … and the names might surprise some. NEFBA backs Sheri Treadwell in HD 11, elder care lawyer Mark MacLean in HD 12, and former RPOF Chair Leslie Dougher in HD 19. While Treadwell is the leading fundraiser in her race, MacLean […]

Though talk is that a candidate still might jump into the House District 16 primary between Jason Fischer and Dick Kravitz, that candidate won’t get the support of the Northeast Florida Builders’ Association. NEFBA released a statement on Wednesday backing Fischer, who runs to replace termed-out Charles McBurney. “It is vital that we have strong leadership at both […]

Fernandina Beach Republican Sheri Treadwell has been hailed by some Republicans as the party’s only chance to drop Donnie Horner in the crowded six-way GOP primary to replace Janet Adkins. With this in mind, the former Duval supervisor of elections worker’s fundraising has been something to watch. September saw another month of decent, though not eye-popping, fundraising […]
