Commissioner Aaronson, Senator Aronberg, and 14 Additional Palm Beach County Officials Endorse Deutch for Congress

State Senator and Candidate for Congress Ted Deutch, today received an overwhelming show of support from Palm Beach County with the endorsements from 15 state, county, and local officials, including County Commissioners Burt Aaronson, Jeff Koons, Shelly Vana, and Priscilla Taylor, State Senator Dave Aronberg, State Representatives Kevin Rader, Kelly Skidmore, Mack Bernard, Joseph Abruzzo, Mary Brandenberg, Mark Pafford and Maria Sachs, Palm Beach Comptroller Sharon Bock, Palm Beach County Tax Collector Anne Gannon, School Board Member Frank Barbieri, and Wellington City Commissioner Matt Wilhite.

Commissioner Aaronson and a dozen of these officials joined Senator Deutch for a Press Conference at the Rose Garden today in West Palm Beach. The early support of almost the entire Palm Beach County delegation provides early momentum for the Deutch Campaign. Last Thursday Deutch launched his candidacy and unveiled his new website

“I am overwhelmed and honored by this amazing support, especially so early in the campaign,” said Ted Deutch today in West Palm Beach.

“Ted is ready to go to Congress and take on the big challenges we face here in South Florida including health care, rising foreclosures, Medicare and our struggling economy” said Commissioner Burt Aaronson. “Also, Ted is someone who has taken care of his constituents over the last three years. They know they can depend on him.”

State Senator Aronberg stated, “Ted is an exceptional legislator – and has shown himself as someone who can pass sweeping reforms on Iran Divestment and health care even as a member of the minority. He’s going to make a fantastic Congressman.”

Deutch is running in District 19 to replace Congressman Robert Wexler, who is resigning in January to head the Center for Middle East Peace. Nearly 71% of registered voters in District 19 reside in Palm Beach County and almost 50% of the district’s constituents are already within Deutch’s senate district.
