Group will “double down” on efforts to increase well-being of Florida families, Hudson says.


TALLAHASSEE — Americans for Prosperity (AFP), the nation’s foremost grassroots advocate for economic freedom, announced leadership changes in the organization’s Florida chapter today. Christopher Hudson has been named Florida State Director to replace Slade O’Brien, who has been elevated to a new role within the organization.  O’Brien, who served as Florida State Director since July of 2011, has been promoted to Regional Director overseeing multiple states.


“Florida has become a model state for enacting policies that spread prosperity by promoting economic freedom and opportunity for every American,” said former State Director Slade O’Brien. “Chris Hudson possesses a wealth of political experience that will serve AFP-Florida well as we continue working to expand economic freedom and opportunity in the Sunshine State and across the country.” 


Prior to joining AFP-Florida, Hudson served as Florida Director of Government Relations for Strategic Advocacy, a public affairs firm, and the Foundation for Government Accountability, a non-partisan free market think tank, in addition to directing numerous campaigns throughout the state.


Hudson had the following to say:
Florida’s economic recovery and top ranking for job growth, business climate and affordable cost of living are the result of the types of policies AFP has been promoting. I am grateful for Slade’s leadership and our entire network of activists for their tremendous work to advance policies of individual liberty and freedom.
I am excited to lead this premier grassroots organization as we double down on our efforts to remind Florida’s elected officials of their obligation to protect the well-being of every Florida taxpayer.
AFP is a national organization with 32 state chapters across the country and over 2.2 million activists.
