SOUTH BEND – Several local organizations are endorsing County Commissioner Deb Fleming with a week remaining until Election Day. Among the latest to endorse Fleming are the St. Joseph County Chamber of Commerce, The Greater South Bend-Mishawaka Association of Realtors, The Homebuilders Association of St. Joseph Valley and St. Joseph County Right to Life.
“Deb Fleming has been effective, working cooperatively with other County Commissioners, to make government more transparent, more responsive to its citizens and more efficient in providing necessary services to the public,” a statement from the Realtors Association read.
The Chamber of Commerce’s Political Action Committee also praised Commissioner Fleming saying, “The ChamberPAC has been encouraged by Fleming’s efforts to modernize county government, implement new technology, find efficiencies within the operations and grow the economy.”
For her part, Fleming said she is thankful for and encouraged by the endorsements and yet there is one endorsement that matters more than any other.
“The endorsement of each individual voter is what is most important,” she insisted. “I work for the citizens of Saint Joseph County; people from every political, religious, socioeconomic and ethnic background. And I hope that they feel I have, and will continue to serve them well.”
