Orlando, FL — On Wednesday June 20, 2018, a press conference was held at the Law Offices of John Stemberger, where John Stemberger, President & General Counsel of Florida Family Action announced the organization’s endorsement of Florida Commissioner of Agriculture Adam Putnam for Florida Governor.
The following is an excerpt from Stemberger’s endorsement statement:
“As Governor, Adam Putnam will work and fight to protect all human life at all stages. He will work to pass laws to support families in Florida and will support laws which protect rights of conscience and the privacy and dignity of women. And finally, and perhaps most importantly, Adam will appoint judges that understand their limited role as interpreters of the law and prevent activist judges from legislating from the bench.
We will hard work over the next five months to educate and mobilize millions of Christians across Florida, both Catholic and Protestant, along with many other people of faith, to vote for Adam Putnam. He not only shares our faith and values, but he just as importantly respects those that do not. We are confident that he will fight just as hard to protect the rights of people of faith to speak and act according to their religion as he will to protect those who have views that disagree.”

Adam Putnam responded with the following remarks:
“I am honored to have the endorsement of Florida Family Action as man a faith, as man of Christian faith. My faith shapes everything about my life, including how my wife Melissa and I raise our family and my approach to public policy. I have a 100% pro-life voting record in my time in public life and I do believe we do have to protect and defend life in the state of Florida. Florida’s families, conservative values and religious freedom are under attack by a coarsening society that wants to erode these fundamental rights. As Governor, I will not only protect these fundamental rights, but I will work with Florida’s faith-based communities to collaborate and support them in their mission to serve Florida families.”
The FFA endorsement represented the unanimous decision of the FFA Board of Directors and also announced was the personal endorsement of the FFA Board Chairman Bill Mutz who serves as the Mayor of Lakeland.
