Janet Cruz wins endorsement of police officers and firefighters
Janet Cruz has won the endorsements of the Florida Police Benevolent Association, the West Central Florida Police Benevolent Association and the Tampa firefighters union in her quest to replace Michael Scionti as the respresentative for District 58 in the Florida House. Scionti resigned last month to take a job with the Department of Defense. A special primary election is scheduled for Jan. 26.
Cruz's campaign reports she has raised $30,000 so far. Pat Kemp, Cruz's most significant opponent, had raised $2,000 as of last week and contributed $10,000 of her own money to the campaign.
