Senate Democratic Leader Lauren Book received the endorsement of the Broward County Police Benevolent Association in her bid to represent Senate District 35.
Redistricting put Book into a new district, where she would have faced fellow incumbent Democratic Sen. Rosalind Osgood. Instead of that Primary fight, she moved to southern Broward County’s District 35 and now faces a challenge from former Broward County Commissioner Barbara Sharief.
Citing her support for expanding first responders’ workers compensation coverage and mental health benefits, Rod Skirvin, President of the Broward PBA, called her the very best candidate.
“Law enforcement relies on public officials,” he said.
