Grinnell says Shannon Elswick will bring conservative
values and healthcare expertise to Tallahassee.
The Shannon Elswick Campaign today announced the endorsement of Lake County Sheriff Peyton Grinnell. Elswick is running to succeed Representative Larry Metz, who faces term limits, in the District 32 seat of the Florida House of Representatives.
“I’m proud to support a man of integrity like Shannon Elswick,” said Grinnell. “Shannon has always worked hard to serve our community, and his thorough knowledge of the challenges facing our healthcare system are badly needed in Tallahassee. I have no doubt that his conservative values and ability to forge relationships will have a positive impact in the Florida House.”
Grinnell was elected Lake County Sheriff last year after serving in the Sheriff’s Office in a variety of capacities since 1994. He is a Marine Corps combat veteran with distinguished service in Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm in the Middle East and Operation Just Cause in Panama. He is a Eustis native and a graduate of Leesburg High School. As Sheriff, Grinnell has made a mark by vigorously pursuing heroin dealers in the community.
“Sheriff Grinnell is a great public servant and leader, and I’m honored to have his support,” said Elswick. “Our law enforcement community here is first rate, and I look forward to working with Sheriff Grinnell to keep Lake County safe and family-friendly.”
District 32 covers the south and central portions of Lake County, including the cities of Clermont and portions of Leesburg. Republicans dominate the district with 41 percent of registered voters while Democrats make up 33 percent.
