Publix statement about campaign contributions
Publix issued the following statement last week, in response to criticism for donating to gubernatorial candidate Adam Putnam:
We are a company that cares about our associates, customers and the communities we serve. It is our mission to do our very best to please all Publix customers.
Recently, stories have circulated on social and traditional media channels regarding Publix’s contributions to Adam Putnam in Florida’s gubernatorial race, and his positions on certain issues. We support bi-partisan, business-friendly candidates, regardless of political affiliation and we remain neutral on issues outside of our core business.
We serve customers with varying points of view and understand the sensitivity that can surround political topics. We appreciate the trust you place in allowing us to be your grocer of choice and your community partner.
