Five individuals who lost family members in the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting have endorsed Jared Moskowitz’s campaign to succeed Rep. Ted Deutch in Congress.
Those offering their support to Moskowitz’s campaign Thursday are among the most visible and outspoken of the MSD survivors.
Max Schachter, whose son, Alex, was killed in the rampage that left 17 dead, serves on the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Commission. He also started Safe Schools for Alex, a nonprofit dedicated to promoting the best practices for school safety.
Schachter said he has no doubt that Moskowitz, who is running for the Democratic nomination in Florida’s 22nd Congressional District, is the best candidate for the job representing a district that includes parts of Broward and Palm Beach counties.
