Northeast Florida Manufacturers Association Endorse Renuart And Stevenson In Special Legislative Elections

The Board of Directors of the First Coast Manufacturers Association (FCMA) has endorsed Ronald “Doc” Renuart in the special election for Florida Senate Seat, District 6, and Cyndi Stevenson to replace him in the special election for Florida House Seat, District 17.

Under the direction of Joe Durkin, chairman of FCMA’s government relations committee, the committee conducted interviews and candidate research. The committee’s recommendation to the Board was to endorse Renuart and Stevenson.

“Representative Renuart has been a strong supporter of manufacturing and business in Florida,” Durkin reported.  “We believe he will be even more effective in the State Senate.

“With Cyndi Stevenson, we think her record as a St. Johns County commissioner and her business background as a CPA will make her an effective legislator for dealing with business and manufacturing issues in the state,” Durkin said.

The First Coast Manufacturers Association is a non-profit trade association serving Northeast Florida. There are over 1,500 manufacturing companies on the First Coast, supplying over 30,000 jobs and generating nearly 15% of the total gross regional product.
