Orlando, FL– Democratic candidate for Florida State House District 47 has earned the endorsement of the Florida Nurses Political Action Committee (FNPAC).
“I write to let you know that FNPAC, the political action committee of the Florida Nurses Associated, has voted to endorse your candidacy to The Florida House of Representatives, District 47,” said Carole Amole, MSN, RN and Chair of FNPAC. “The Florida Nurses Association is the largest statewide organization of Registered Nurses and the only umbrella organization that has among our members Registered Nurses in all areas of professional practice.”
Anna added the following statement to celebrate her latest endorsement:
“I am honored to have the support of the Florida Nurses Political Action Committee. Nurses are the backbone of our health care systems, delivering intimate care while reducing the cost of services too. I will never forget the impact of nurses who took care of my Mom when she was sick, or the amazing skill of nurses at my former employer, Planned Parenthood. Ensuring access to care is one of my major legislative priorities, and I am looking forward to working alongside FNPAC and others to find solutions that reduce the cost of health care, break down barriers, and eliminate disparities.”
