As Florida Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam heads forward in his campaign to replace Governor Rick Scott as the next Governor of the Sunshine State, Republican Denise Grimsley is looking to replace Putnam as Florida’s next Agriculture Commissioner. And, she’s just received endorsements from 10 Florida sheriffs.
In a statement, Grimsley commented that she is “truly grateful for the support of 10 Florida sheriffs who have endorsed my campaign. Our local law enforcement officers put their lives on the line on a daily basis to ensure our communities are safe, and I am honored that so many of Florida’s sheriffs have chosen to lend me their support.”
She also added that “Now, more than ever, we must recognize the critical role these law enforcement officers play in protecting Florida’s families, and we must do all we can to ensure they have the resources they need at their disposal. As Commissioner of Agriculture, the law enforcement community can rest assured that I will empower them to do their life-saving jobs effectively.”
Martin County Sheriff William Snyder, one of the ten sheriffs that endorsed her, joined Grimsley in a press release announcing the endorsement, and he detailed that “Together, with a number of my fellow sheriffs from around the state, I am proud to endorse Denise Grimsley for Florida Commissioner of Agriculture. With her core values, expertise and background, I am confident that she is the best and only choice to be Florida’s next Commissioner of Agriculture.”
