Today, the Tommy Gregory Campaign announced the endorsement of the Manatee County Medical Society PAC. Gregory is running for the District 73 seat in the Florida House of Representatives, currently held by Joe Gruters, who is running for the Florida Senate.

“I’m honored to have Manatee County Medical Society PAC’s support,” said Gregory. “Healthcare remains one of the most important issues and challenges we face in Florida, and I look forward to working with them to find workable solutions that will help its members provide even greater quality of care to their patients.”

The Manatee County Medical Society was formed in 1906 with the mission of guarding and fostering the mutual interests of its member physicians as well as promote high-quality health care for patients. Member physicians are carefully screened for proper education credentials.

Gregory has also been endorsed by the National Rifle Association, Gulf Coast Builders Exchange, and a host of current and former elected officials. They include Sarasota County Property Appraiser Bill Furst; Sarasota County Commissioners Paul Caragiolo, Charles Hines, Alan Maio, and Michael Moran; Manatee County Commissioner Robin DiSabatino; and 12th Judicial Circuit Public Defender Larry Eger. He has also been endorsed by former U.S. Senator Connie Mack; Sarasota County Sheriff Tom Knight; former Manatee County Sheriff Brad Steube; former Manatee County Sheriff Charlie Wells; State Representative Danny Burgess; former State Senator Lisa Carlton; former Manatee County Commissioners Donna Hayes and Jonathan Bruce; and former Sarasota County Commissioner Christine Robinson.
