Firefighters for Lee



The 21,000-member Florida Professional Firefighters, today endorsed Republican Tom Lee for Chief Financial Officer (CFO)/State Fire Marshal.

“Tom Lee has a strong and consistent record of standing up for Florida’s First Responders – both as a Senator, and recently in his leadership role as Senate President. He voted for strengthening safety laws, funding for equipment, and dditional training for Firefighters, to ensure that we had the tools to get the job done,” said Bob Carver, President of the FPF.

Meanwhile, some politicos are Buzzing about a new trial lawyer's poll by Sergio Bendixon showing Democratic CFO candidate Alex Sink barely trailing Lee.
