Northeast Florida Association of Realtors Make Putnam County Political Candidate Recommendations

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The Northeast Florida Association of Realtors' (NEFAR) Board of Directors has voted to support Nikki Cummings (District 1), Wilford Petersen (District 4) and Kathleen Jorgensen (District 5) for election to the Putnam County School Board. "The Putnam County School Board faces tough challenges as they work to promote a quality educational experience for students, parents and teachers with a shrinking budget. We believe these three candidates will be positive additions to the Board; offering fresh solutions along with experience and knowledge in education, business and community involvement," said NEFAR President Carol Hill.

NEFAR's Candidate Screening Task Force interviewed candidates for election in Putnam County on July 15. In addition to the School Board candidates, NEFAR's Board of Directors also recommended Ed Taylor for reelection to County Commission District 4. As a County Commissioner, Ed Taylor has been readily accessible to his constituents; working to solve problems while promoting fiscal responsibility in the County budget.
