John Newstreet Backed By Job Creators

Realtors, NFIB and Florida Chamber all choose John Newstreet as the best choice for District 44

Orlando, Fla., (June 29, 2017) – Across Florida, the organizations responsible for growing our economy say John Newstreet is the only candidate who will ensure Florida’s economy remains strong and creats new jobs.

This week, the Florida Chamber of Commerce, the National Federation of Independent Businesses and the Florida Realtors all endorsed Newstreet as the only choice in the Republican primary special election for State Representative District 44.

The endorsements come after the political arm of the West Orange Chamber of Commerce chose Newstreet as their candidate of choice.

“For most of my life, I have worked with businesses to grow and create jobs for Floridians,” Newstreet said. “Along with serving Veterans, economic development and an improved economy for Florida will be my focus if the voters ask me to serve them as their representative.”

For the past 100 years, the Florida Chamber has stood up for what’s right for Florida. When the battle is about what is best for Florida’s future, the Florida Chamber is on the front lines.

“John Newstreet understands the importance of free enterprise, and is committed to standing up for jobs and economic growth. He believes in putting Florida’s long-term economy ahead of short-term political fixes, and will work to secure Florida’s future,” Marian Johnson, senior vice president of political strategy for the Florida Chamber.

The Florida Realtors is the largest trade association in the state with more than 165,000 members and focuses on growing Florida’s real estate industry.

Representing small businesses, the National Federation of Independent Business represents 325,000 like-minded business owners on a mission to fight for the right to own, operate and grow a business.

Newstreet is a businessman, conservative and only veteran running in the Florida House of Representatives seat vacated by Eric Eisnaugle, who resigned upon being appointed to the Florida Judiciary.

Newstreet is an executive with a local chamber of commerce, a veteran of the U.S. Coast Guard, the former chairman of the Orange County Young Republicans and a homeowner in the district since 2008.  He has also advocated for Florida’s veterans as the former state director of the American Legion and during his work with the offices of both U.S. Senator Mel Martinez and Marco Rubio.  He resides in the Dr. Philips area where he attends Holy Family Catholic Church.

The primary special election for House District 44 will be on Tuesday, August 15.
