Stuart, FL, January 08, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- As Representative William Snyder (R-82) prepares for a productive legislative session in Tallahassee, the numbers for his bid as the next Martin County Sheriff are proving very productive as well. The total contributions moving into the next reporting cycle have reached $166,000.00, making the “Snyder for Sheriff” campaign the highest earning sheriff’s campaign in Martin County history. With seven months to go before the primary election, Snyder calls the support overwhelming. “We knew going into the race we would have a great deal of support just based on our grass roots efforts within the community,” said William Snyder. “I am humbled, and very grateful that the support has manifested into the level that it has.”
Representative Snyder, who also chairs the House Judiciary Committee, will begin the first two months of 2012 in Tallahassee spearheading legislation which focuses on combating human trafficking in Florida. Throughout the session, Snyder cannot accept any financial contributions for his sheriff’s campaign. “Our team was prepared for this two month contribution hiatus,” said Snyder. “While I am working for the citizens of Florida in Tallahassee, my campaign team in Martin County will continue to attend public events, pass out literature and work with Martin County residents on my behalf. We just cannot accept any campaign contributions while I am in session.”
Snyder says his event calendar is already filling up for events upon the close of session, which is in March. “Our campaign team is strong, organized and willing to be present in the community,” said Snyder. “Our Snyder for Sheriff Facebook page and website, which both have logged thousands of hits every week will still be active, and while I’m working on this important legislation in Tallahassee, I remain committed to my supporters and all of the citizens of Martin County.”
The primary election for the Martin County Sheriff’s race is in August. Early voting begins in June.
