Mayoral Candidates Endorsed: Freneaux Supported by Central Leaders, Shelton by EBR Political Action Committees

By  | 

    In two very different shows of support, Mayoral candidate Dave Freneaux has turned to Central's community leaders for endorsement while his opponent Junior Shelton has received the backing of three EBR Political Action Committees, or “PACs”.
    Fifteen of Central’s community leaders have asked the voters to join them in electing Dave Freneaux as the next Mayor of Central.  The group includes many of those whose efforts helped create the City of Central and Central’s School System, and a host of current and former elected officials and city and school system volunteers.
    Shelton has turned to his ties to EBR political and real estate industry PACs for support.  His recent mailer touts endorsements by three organizations who are PACs or whose associated Political Action Committees have donated to the Shelton campaign.  Shelton has also been endorsed by one current Central Council Member.
