U.S. Rep. Kendrick Meek Endorsed for U.S. Senate by City of West Palm Beach Mayor Lois Frankel

U.S. Rep. Kendrick Meek (D-Miami) was endorsed by City of West Palm Beach Mayor Lois Frankel today, the first mayor in Palm Beach County to endorse Kendrick Meek.

“When I think of West Palm Beach, the first person that comes to my mind is Mayor Frankel,” said Congressman Kendrick Meek. “Lois is a fierce advocate for her community, always providing the very best leadership for her constituents. For too many years so-called leaders in Tallahassee and Washington, DC have made her job increasingly difficult and the people of West Palm Beach deserve to benefit from the leadership that Mayor Frankel offers on a daily basis. I look forward to working hand in hand with Lois throughout this campaign in West Palm Beach, Palm Beach County and beyond.”

“My home community of West Palm Beach needs a fighter in the U.S. Senate like Kendrick Meek who is a recognized leader that understands the needs of our cities,” said Mayor Frankel. “As a former Trooper with a law enforcement background, Kendrick knows that in a challenged economy, giving mayors the option to choose between cutting police officers or firefighters in order to balance budgets is unacceptable. The City of West Palm Beach needs a champion in the U.S. Senate and that person is Kendrick Meek."

Yesterday Meek received the endorsement of Broward County Mayor Stacy Ritter.
