Openly Gay County Mayor Looks Towards August 24th Primary
Broward County Mayor Ken Keechl has received the endorsement of the Realtor Association of Greater Fort Lauderdale in his campaign for re-election as Broward County Commissioner for District 4.
In its letter of endorsement, the organization stated that Mayor Keechl has, “…the necessary attributes to best serve the community.” Their endorsement noted that Mayor Keechl will continue to support issues of importance to the real estate industry and, “…we believe you will continue to be a strong voice for all of Broward County.”
Mayor Keechl has also recently earned endorsements from the Building Industry Political Action Committee (BIPAC), the political arm of the Builders Association of South Florida, and Equality Florida Action PAC. Equality Florida is a statewide education and advocacy organization dedicated to eliminating discrimination based on sexual orientation, race, gender
and class. In one of his earliest endorsements, Keechl earned the endorsement of Unite Here Local 355, a union representing 5,000 hotel, food service and casino workers, in November 2009.
“I thank these organizations for their confidence in my leadership, and I appreciate their willingness to encourage their members to support my campaign for re-election,” said Mayor Keechl. “I look forward to continuing to serve all the citizens of Broward County.”
Keechl was first elected to the Broward County Commission in November 2006 and became mayor of Broward
County in January 2010.
