Former Hampton Mayor James Mitzel Backs Kat Cammack in FL-03
Mitzel joins public servants from across the District choosing to place their support behind Kat Cammack's campaign
Gainesville, FL - Kat Cammack, the Constitutional conservative candidate for Congress in FL-03, has landed an endorsement from former Hampton Mayor James Mitzel.
Hon. James Mitzel is currently serving as the President of the Hampton Veterans' Memorial Fund. The fund was created in 2008 in the memory of Hampton-native, Major Alan G Rogers who was killed in the line of duty. He has also formally served as the Chairman of the City Council of Hampton and the Mayor of the city of Hampton.
Hon. James Mitzel gave the following statement:
"I had the pleasure of meeting Kat at several events for the Hampton Veterans’ Memorial Fund. In both a personal and professional capacity as Congressman Ted Yoho’s Deputy Chief of Staff, Kat never misses a chance to show her support and appreciation for those who have served this country. She was also a great public servant when I served on the City Council of Hampton as well. We were able to spend countless times together at the Florida League of Cities as well. It meant a great deal to see someone from the federal level take stake in the local municipalities. Kat is undoubtedly the best choice to take over the work of Congressman Ted Yoho."
Cammack gave the following statement in response to the endorsement:
"I am honored to receive the support of former Mayor and City Councilman, James Mitzel in this race. The Hampton Veterans' Memorial Fund is something I have continually been proud to support. Mr. Mitzel works hard in all he does to protect the memories and sacrifices of those who have fought for our country. As a Mayor and former Chair of the City Council, James has worked tirelessly to represent Hampton as a local municipality and an integral piece of Bradford County. I look forward to working with him, if I am given the honor to represent Florida's 3rd Congressional District on Capitol Hill."
In addition to several national endorsements and coalitions released by the campaign since Cammack announced her candidacy, she has been endorsed by a number of current and former District-area current and former mayors, including Mayor Jordan Marlowe of Newberry, Mayor Gib Coerper of Alachua, Mayor Gene Melvin of Brooker, Former Mayor Tony Brown of Keystone Heights, and Mayor Brett Peterson of Crescent City.
