Dear Friend,

I’m not one who typically reaches out to friends, colleagues and co-workers to suggest how to vote in an election. But you and I as Florida voters have an important choice to make in the upcoming governor’s race. The future direction of our state is at stake. That’s why I’m asking you to support Adam Putnam in the August 28 primary election.

I’ve known Adam personally for more than 20 years, and I can say this unequivocally: No other candidate is more qualified and more experienced to lead Florida into the next decade.

From the panhandle to Homestead, he knows our state. He has a deep understanding of its people and the issues that will shape our growth. He knows how to get things done – his career of public service demonstrates that clearly.

Adam’s leadership is unparalleled. We have seen that during the past eight years as he’s advocated for agriculture and helped to ensure the industry continues to thrive. During his time in Congress, he led on difficult issues and earned respect from all corners.

His character is above reproach. I know Adam to be a man of integrity. He loves and is devoted to his family, his state and his country.

Simply put, we can’t afford to sit on the sidelines during this election – too much is at risk. Please join me in voting for Adam Putnam for governor on August 28, and urge your family, friends and business colleagues to do the same.

Best regards,

Michael J. Stuart
