MARTIN COUNTY — Sheriff Republican primary winner state Rep. William Snyder credits his record as a state legislator for his win Tuesday night.
"People know me," said Snyder, who has spent six years as a legislator. "I have a track record and people know what I have done."
About half of Republican voters chose Snyder, 59, over candidates John "Ski" Pietruszewski, a Sheriff’s Office major and David Dees, a former director of law enforcement for the Florida Department of Transportation.
Snyder will face write-in candidate Trent Wetherald of Hobe Sound in the general election in November.
However, Snyder is a heavy favorite in Republican leaning Martin County. Reported by: tcpalm.com
