John Newstreet Endorsed by Law Enforcement

Central Florida’s Police Benevolent Association joins multiple other groups in choosing Newstreet for State House

Orlando, Fla., (August 1, 2017) – John Newstreet received the endorsement of the Central Florida Chapter of the Florida Police Benevolent Association, one of the largest law enforcement organizations in the region.

In the special election for State House District 44, Newstreet has received every major endorsement issued by organizations focused on improving the community and the opportunities of its members.

“To often in today’s society the service our police officers provide our community each and every day is overlooked and taken for granted,” Newstreet says. “It will be an honor working with the men and women in blue who are on the front lines of keeping our citizens safe.”

The Police Benevolent Association represents the men and women who keep our communities safe.

“Of all the candidates in this special election, John Newstreet is the only one who truly understands the value of service to one’s community,” says Ron Beardslee, Central Florida Chapter of the Florida Police Benevolent Association. “He showcases the value of what we are looking for to represent our members and are encouraging everyone who we represent to vote for him.”

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. Learn more at or on Facebook.
