The campaign also announced May’s fundraising numbers and has now exceeded $80,000 in total fundraising since Hodgers declared his candidacy in March.
“We are pleased to announce our support for a strong and experienced leader like Brian Hodgers,” said Dr. Devin Datta, President of the Brevard County Medical Society. “We believe Hodgers will do a fantastic job as our State Representative advocating on the healthcare issues affecting the citizens of Brevard County.”
The Brevard County Medical Society is a professional and scientific organization of medical and osteopathic physicians in Brevard County. Established in 1904, the Society is the local affiliate of the Florida Medical Association and a member of the Federation of Medicine. Dr. Datta is an orthopedic surgeon and owner of the Back Center in Melbourne. He graduated from the University of Missouri School of Medicine at Kansas City, completed his residency at the University of Missouri, and completed his fellowship at Harvard University—Beth Israel.
“We’re honored to have the support of Dr. Datta and the Brevard County Medical Society,” said Brian Hodgers. “We are also extremely pleased with the fundraising success that the campaign has realized. We’re looking forward to continued support as we share our vision for more jobs, lower taxes, and a world-class education system for Floridians in District 52 and throughout the state.”
