TALLAHASSEE (FLV) – The Florida State Lodge Fraternal Order of Police endorsed Wilton Simpson for Agriculture Commissioner Wednesday.
“Commissioner of Agriculture is an important position in the future prosperity and safety of our great state and Wilton Simpson is the candidate that will fill the position with strong and aggressive leadership,” Fraternal Order of Police President Steve Zona said.
The Florida State Lodge Fraternal Order of Police represents more than 24,000 law enforcement officers.
