On Wednesday evening State Representative Jennifer Sullivan meet with about 40 supporters in the Seacoast Bank lobby in Apopka. Sullivan is the incumbent in the race to represent District 31, which includes most of Apopka north of 441 and 436.
She told the group that one of the things she has taken away personally from the past two years. "It is not enough to be a conservative and principled person," said Sullivan. "It's also really important to be effective. That does not mean you compromise your principles to be effective. When we look at our state and our nation we cannot afford to not be effective. If we are not effective we will lose ground; taxes will go up and we will lose jobs."
Many of those listed on the announcement of the "Meet-And-Greet Fundraiser" as the Host Committee were in attendance. Many took advantage of the "meet-and-greet" aspect of the event to spend a few minutes speaking one-on-one with Representative Sullivan.
Sullivan faces Eustis resident Theo Bob in the Republican Primary. Voting in the August 30th Primary has already begun via vote-by-mail. Early Voting begins on Monday, August 15th. The last day to vote is Tuesday, August 30th.
The winner of the Republican Primary Election will face Apopka attorney, Robert Rightmyer, an independent candidate, in the November 8th General Election.
