Travis Hutson today announced that Florida’s Commissioner of Agriculture Adam Putnam has endorsed him in his candidacy for the newly-drawn Florida House of Representatives District 24 seat, which includes parts of Flagler, St. Johns and Volusia Counties. Commissioner Putnam serves alongside Governor Rick Scott in the Florida Cabinet, and oversees Florida’s Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.
“Travis’s experience in small business and creating jobs is just the kind of leadership we need in the Florida House,” said Commissioner Putnam. “I am happy to support him, and I know he will stand up for sound conservative policies we need to grow Florida’s economy. I look forward to working with Travis in Tallahassee.”
“I am honored to receive Commissioner Putnam’s support in my race for State Representative,” said Hutson. “I thank him for his endorsement today and for his steadfast leadership and dedication to our state. I hope to work alongside Commissioner Putnam to help achieve a more stable economic environment for our communities and employers.”
Hutson currently works at the Hutson Companies, overseeing charitable foundations as well as property and agricultural management. He also sits on the board of directors for HandsOn Jacksonville and on the development committee for St. Augustine Youth Services. 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 investments.
