Press release from Ed Book for Gainesville City Commission District 2
Jody Branaman, President of the North Central Florida Police Benevolent Association (PBA), has announced that the PBA has endorsed Ed Book for Gainesville City Commission District 2.
The endorsement letter says the union will ask their members to support Book’s candidacy “because of your commitment to law enforcement in our community.”
The North Central Florida Chapter of the PBA represent thousands of law enforcement officers in 13 counties in the region.
Previously, other first responder organizations, represented by the Fraternal Order of Police Gator Lodge 67 and the Gainesville Professional Firefighters IAFF Local 2157, also formally announced support for Ed Book.
Book said he hopes that Gainesville neighbors will join law enforcement officers, firefighters, and emergency medical first responders who consider him worthy of election and vote on August 23rd.
