Former St. Johns & Flagler Counties Representative Bill Proctor Endorses Travis Hutson for SD6 Special Election

St. Augustine, Fla. – Republican Candidate Travis Hutson today announced former St. Johns & Flagler Counties Representative Bill Proctor has endorsed him in his bid for the Special Election for Senate District 6, which will be held on January 27, 2015.

“I thank Representative Proctor for his endorsement of my campaign,” said Hutson. “As a former local representative and advocate for our communities, Bill understands what it takes to get the job done for the First Coast and I am proud to have his support.”

“I support Travis Hutson in his bid for Senate District 6,” said Representative Proctor, who previously served St. Johns, Clay, and Flagler Counties in the Florida House of Representatives.  “Because of his support for education and his understanding of the economy, I believe he is the conservative leader this district needs to continue the fight for our local values in the Senate.”

Since announcing his candidacy for Senate District 6, Hutson has been endorsed by Florida Commissioner of Agriculture Adam Putnam. Senate District 6 includes Flagler, Putnam, St. Johns Counties, as well as part of Volusia County.

Prior to running for the Special Election for Senate District 6, Hutson served in the Florida House of Representatives.  Hutson was elected to Florida House District 24, which includes Flagler County and parts of St. Johns and Volusia Counties, in 2012 and was subsequently re-elected.

While serving in the Florida House, Hutson championed crucial legislation for House District 24 and the state, focusing on the economy and public safety. In education, Hutson helped craft enhancements to Florida’s Career and Professional Education Act, responding to Florida’s critical workforce needs. Hutson closed loopholes in the release of sexual violent predators making Northeast Florida’s most vulnerable citizens safer. Also, Hutson improved the water quality in Florida, as he successfully carried Florida Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam’s water policy reform in the Florida House.

Hutson works in his family’s business, assisting in property and agricultural management and local charitable giving.  He also sat on the board of directors for HandsOn Jacksonville and on the development committee for St. Augustine Youth Services and has been a member of the board of directors for EPIC in St. Johns County.  Previously, Hutson was a realtor with Watson Realty. In 2010, Hutson worked for Ambassador John Rood with the Vestcor Companies and specialized in sales and acquisitions, as well as analyzing financial data for incoming and outgoing deals.
 
Hutson graduated from Lafayette College in Pennsylvania in 2007 with a bachelor’s degree in Economics and Business.   He resides in St Augustine with his wife, Tanya, and their daughter, Taylor.
