Expressing a deep love for Bay County, business executive Jay Trumbull released the final video in his GOP primary campaign for House District 6.
Trumbull faces three GOP opponents on Tuesday — Tho Bishop, Melissa Hagan and Thelma Rohan – in the race to succeed term-limited state Rep. Jimmy Patronis for the district covering southern Bay County and Panama City, Panama City Beach and Tyndall Air Force Base.
In the video, Trumbull outlined his vision for creating jobs, and restated his commitment to stand against “Barack Obama and the liberals in D.C.”
“Our message has never been difficult to tell,” Trumbull said in a statement, “because so many people here already share the same values and vision for Bay County. We love the land and water here, and, most importantly, the people. We’re not about to let Washington or Tallahassee tell us how to run our lives.”
Trumbull’s background is in the bottled water and water conditioning industry, as part of a family business going back several generations. They own seven Culligan dealerships in Florida, Alabama and Georgia. He is a graduate of Bay High School and Auburn University, and is married to Brittany Fishel.
“I’m so proud of the many volunteers who have worked with me throughout this primary election cycle,” he added. “We wouldn’t be in the position we’re in without this overwhelming team effort. I’m blessed by their support.”
