After a successful first term growing Florida’s agriculture industry, safeguarding consumers from fraud, fostering academic success and honoring American veterans, Adam Putnam earned endorsements from nine of Florida’s editorial boards for a second term as Florida’s Commissioner of Agriculture.
“[Putnam] has a knowledge of the state and appreciation of Florida that is all too rare today in Tallahassee, and he is pragmatic about getting things done,” wrote the editorial board of the Tampa Bay Times.
“Putnam, one of four members of the Florida Cabinet, has helped draw attention in Tallahassee to one of the state's most pressing problems: its threatened water supply,” according to the editorial boards of the Orlando Sentinel and South Florida Sun-Sentinel. “He has a sophisticated understanding of this complex issue, and he has made water conservation in agriculture one of his department's priorities.”
Newspapers that have endorsed Putnam for a second term as Commissioner of Agriculture include:
- Tampa Bay Times
- Tampa Tribune
- Orlando Sentinel
- Miami Herald
- Florida Times-Union
- Palm Beach Post
- Naples Daily News
- Bradenton Herald
In addition, Putnam has earned endorsements from many of Florida’s business leaders and agricultural organizations, including Associated Industries of Florida, Florida Chamber of Commerce, National Federation of Independent Businesses, Florida Retail Federation and the National Rifle Association.
Just last week, Putnam launched his “Florida Grown” Bus Tour. Putnam and the “Florida Grown” Bus Tour will crisscross Florida through Election Day to make more than 50 visits to the state’s diverse cities - and their residents.
