The national environmental advocacy group Food & Water Action is endorsing Maxwell Alejandro Frost in the primary for Florida’s 10th Congressional district.
The group was in the midst of considering an endorsement in the contested 10th Congressional District when State Senator Randolph Bracy, one of Frost’s opponents in the race, sided with Republicans and the fossil fuel industry in voting to undercut the state’s net metering rules. The law, which passed with Gov. DeSantis’ support, will make it harder for Floridians who have invested in solar for their homes to sell electricity back into the grid, giving more power to utility corporations and fossil fuel power plants.
Food & Water Action Political Director Sam Bernhardt issued the following statement:
“Sending Maxwell Alejandro Frost to Congress won’t just win another vote for climate action; it will send a movement builder to DC. Maxwell is an organizer focused on building the power of progressive movements. We look forward to building the climate movement together with him.”
Food & Water Action, the political and lobbying arm of the national advocacy group Food & Water Watch, mobilizes people to build political power to move bold and uncompromised solutions to the most pressing food, water and climate problems of our time. We work to protect people’s health, communities and democracy from the growing destructive power of the most powerful economic interests.
