Not only is state Rep. Doc Renuart the first candidate to qualify for a special election in Senate District 6, but he is also the first to release a campaign mail piece.
With a focus on a career of service to improve life in Northeast Florida, Renuart’s mailer will hit mailboxes of Republican voters throughout District 6 starting today.
According to the ad, Renuart, who currently represents House District 17, is “a tireless leader for working families and military veterans” as well as a “driving force in Tallahassee behind legislation that cuts taxes, streamlines state government, and promotes family values.” Renuart, a physician and former chief of medicine at the Baptist Medical Center Beaches, was first elected to the House in 2008.
“As a physician,” Renuart’s flyer says, “I spend my days talking with real people who have serious concerns – good-paying jobs and making ends meet are at the top of the list. To strengthen our economy, Florida must continue to attract job creators by cutting government red tape and creating a climate that allows businesses to begin and grow.”
Renuart faces state Rep. Travis Hutson, who also vacated his House District 24 seat to run in the race to replace former state Sen. John Thrasher.
Thrasher, in turn, left the Senate in November to become Florida State University president.
As state senator, Renuart vows to continue advancing causes and address concerns as a leader on the “front lines,” trusted to fight for families, as well as shape Florida’s future.
District 6 includes St. Johns, Flagler and Putnam counties and part of Volusia County. The special primary election is Jan. 27, with a special general election scheduled for April 7.
