In a new e-book titled Let’s Get It Done: Denise Grimsley on the Issues, Florida Agriculture Commissioner candidate Denise Grimsley outlines the policies she would implement and support should she be elected to replace current Florida Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam.
According to a press release, the e-book “includes her thoughts and policy proposals; vision for rural Florida; the Second Amendment; consumer protections and her effort to stop illegal telemarketing calls; young farmers; water; foreign trade; veterans; and, the energy office.”
Grimsley explained in a statement that “The Florida Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services is a Cabinet agency with approximately 4,000 employees and more than a dozen divisions, and the next commissioner will have an important vote along with the governor on matters.”
Grimsley also added that “This post deserves a conservative Republican candidate who has done their homework and is ready to step into the role with a comprehensive understanding of the issues and challenges – from agriculture to consumer protection – the next commissioner will face and have to tackle.”
The press release added that “Before entering politics, Grimsley served as vice president and COO of her family business, Grimsley Oil Company, and is a fifth-generation Floridian involved in the citrus and ranching industries. She is also a registered nurse and hospital administrator, as well as a businesswoman. She has one daughter and two grandchildren.”
