BRANDON – Danny Kushmer, candidate for the open Florida Congressional District 15 seat, has been endorsed by Bartow Commissioner Trish Pfeiffer.
Pfeiffer, elected to the Bartow City Commission in 2014 in an at-large seat, said, “I am proud to support Danny Kushmer. Danny and I attended Leadership Bartow together and over the past 12 years we have worked on many issues important to the city of Bartow and Polk County. I am proud to give him my support as I believe he will serve the best interests of our community and local governments in Washington D.C.”
Kushmer, a third generation Floridian from southeastern Hillsborough County, said he is honored to have Pfeiffer’s support and endorsement.
“As I step into this race for Congress I am honored to have the support of Trish Pfeiffer. I truly appreciate her endorsement, which is a testament to the work I have done in the community. I look forward to working in Congress to insure local government can do the work they need without duplicative and unnecessary interference from Washington,” Kushmer said.
