Hernando builders, others endorse
The Hernando Builders Association endorsed a straight Republican ticket for the upcoming elections in a recent press release.
For Hernando County Commission, they like Jeff Stabins in District 1, John Druzbick in District 3 and James Adkins in District 5. In the lone (supposedly nonpartisan) School Board race they picked Gene Magrini, and for the state Legislature they endorsed Robert Schenck.
In other endorsement news, Magrini won the seal of approval from the Hernando County Association of Realtors and the Hernando Classroom Teachers' Association. His opponent, James Yant, was recently endorsed by former candidate Robert Neuhausen, who polled third in the primary. Yant finished first in the primary with Magrini second.
