Amanda Murphy, the Democratic candidate for House District 36, was endorsed today by former Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink.

“Amanda is the type of leader we need in Tallahassee representing all Floridians,” said Sink. “She grew up in Pasco County and raised her children there.  Her commitment to community service, her financial training, and her strong business background prepare her to well-represent the families of West Pasco.”

Sink has known Amanda Murphy for seven years. “I was thrilled when Amanda entered the race,” added Sink.  “I can’t think of a better person to carry on Mike Fasano’s record of putting the needs of Pasco families first.”

“I am honored to receive Alex Sink’s endorsement,” said Amanda Murphy. “She is a true leader and has done great things for this State. During her time in office, she fought for the well-being of all Floridians, not just corporate special interests. I look forward to doing the same when I take office in Tallahassee after the October 15 election.”
