Sheriffs Endorse Maddox

June 15th, 2010 by flanews

Law enforcement officers are split on who to endorse for commissioner of agriculture.

Today seven sheriffs and the Florida Fraternal Order of Police endorsed Democratic candidate Scott Maddox. His Republican Rival Adam Putman has tallied the support of more than 30 sheriffs. Maddox says getting the endorsements from the sheriffs is important because of the consumer protection and fraud prevention role of the office his is running for.

This department and the job Im running for, Commissioner of Agriculture and Consumer Services, plays a key role in law enforcement and especially in protecting the consumer. I will bring with me the values of law enforcement and the values of the folks who are standing behind me, as well as the values of the Fraternal Order of Police and their 20-thousand members, said Maddox.

One of the sheriffs endorsing Maddox had to travel across state lines. John Bunnell has taken a break from fighting crime and now hosts several police shows including COPS, Americas Most Wanted and Worlds Craziest Police Chases to name a few.
