in Uncategorized by

Bill Young II has received the support from Florida’s leading advocate for pro-medicine candidates in his bid for State House District 68.

On Wednesday, the Florida Medical Association PAC (FMA PAC) announced its endorsement of Young, son of the late U.S. Rep. C.W. Bill Young, who is running against Democratic incumbent Rep. Dwight Dudley for the seat representing eastern Pinellas County, Pinellas Park and St. Petersburg.

“As someone with business development experience, Bill Young understands the many policies that are placed on local businesses,” said FMA PAC President Dr. Ralph Nobo. “He shares our goal of a health care system that protects patients and safeguards physicians’ ability to practice medicine in the state of Florida. The FMA PAC is pleased to endorse Bill Young’s candidacy.”

“Hospitals in this state employ over 250,000 people and the healthcare industry employment as a whole is approaching 1,000,000,” Young said. “The economic impact of this industry is huge and as a pro-business candidate that will fight for less regulation.”

“I am proud to have the endorsement of the Florida Medical Association,” he added.

Established in 1974, FMA PAC supports state office candidates who support making Florida the best state to practice medicine. Through voluntary contributions from healthcare professionals, FMA studies and chooses candidates who will actively promote the medical profession. As Florida’s foremost medical PAC, FMA had raised over $1 million through the end of 2013.

Young currently serves in the Business Development department at the National Forensic Science Technology Center (NFSTC), a non-profit organization based in Largo that aids the justice and defense industries through research, technology and training.
