Endorsement from David Dees

“One of the key lessons I have learned, in over 30 years in law enforcement, is that public service requires a servant’s heart, and a selfless passion for seeing citizens have a prosperous, safe environment in which to live, build businesses, and raise their families.

Calvin Turnquest is a leader with a servant’s heart, It is the key quality in him that makes me honored to endorse his candidacy for United States Congress for the 18th Congressional District of Florida.

The Treasure Coast is a unique place. The cultural, environmental and historical features of this area give it incredible promise, and I’ve seen it grow, thrive, and adapt to the changing landscape.  Anyone desiring to represent this area must understand what makes our area a true treasure, in every sense of the word.

Calvin is the only Republican candidate in the race who has devoted the time to learn the issues, spend quality time with the citizens, and understand what is at stake. He actively takes the time to meet with our community leaders and elected officials, listening to ideas, needs and concerns, and demonstrates respect and appreciation for the challenges that we face.

Calvin Turnquest is a man of integrity and I am honored to endorse him.”

– David Dees, Major, Martin County Sheriff’s Office (ret.) and former Director, State law enforcement agency.
