Construction Industry’s Election Fund Also Provides the Maximum Contribution to Support the Governor’s Senate Campaign
The Associated General Contractors of America Political Action Committee, also known as the AGC PAC, announced today that it has endorsed Rick Scott for the United States Senate. AGC PAC officials said they are supporting the governor’s campaign because of his pro-growth economic record.
“Congress needs serious leaders who will work hard to find solutions to our nation’s most pressing issues,” said Stephen E. Sandherr, treasurer of AGC PAC. “Governor Scott has a proven track record of lowering taxes and removing regulatory burdens to help create jobs, encourage innovation, and promote economic growth. His experience as a businessman and public servant will make him an effective voice for the construction industry in the United States Senate.”
In addition to endorsing Gov. Scott, AGC PAC has contributed the maximum amount of $10,000 to his Senate campaign. AGC PAC is encouraging Florida AGC members to help turn out the construction vote in support of the governor on November 6.
“Governor Scott has worked tirelessly for Floridians. The governor will take his experience to Washington where he will proactively address challenges faced by contractors and work hard to identify ways to invest in infrastructure and workforce development,” said Michelle Anaya Depotter, AGC Florida East Coast Chapter CEO. “The governor played an integral role in Florida’s economic recovery after the Great Recession. The work ethic and business acumen that helped him guide our state will serve him well as our next senator,” added Carlos Carrillo, executive director of the AGC South Florida Chapter.
AGC is the leading association for the construction industry, with hundreds of member companies in Florida, representing general and specialty contractors, service providers, and suppliers. This endorsement comes from AGC PAC, the national association’s political action committee.
