The Florida Medical Association PAC (FMA PAC), Florida’s leading advocate for electing pro-medicine candidates to office, today endorsed candidate Eric Lynn in his bid for Florida House District 68.
Chris Pittman, M.D., President of Florida Medical Association’s PAC, stated, “The FMA PAC is proud to stand with Eric Lynn for House District 68. Eric’s extensive and impressive experience and service in DC and at the Pentagon will no doubt serve him well in the Florida House. We look forward to working with him on the issues of importance to the physicians of this state.”
“I am honored today to receive support from the Florida Medical Association,” said Eric Lynn. “I look forward to working with FMA physicians and healthcare professionals across Pinellas and greater Florida as we fight to improve health care for Floridians.”
Florida’s House District 68, which includes part of Pinellas County, is an open seat currently held by Rep. Dwight Dudley (D-St. Petersburg), who is running for Pinellas County Court judge.
Eric Lynn is a native of St. Petersburg and graduate from St. Petersburg High School, Eric always knew he would return to Pinellas County to raise his family. He wants to raise his children with the same Pinellas values — service, sacrifice and family — that he grew up with there. Values he took with him to Northwestern University and to Georgetown Law School where he earned his degree while working on Capitol Hill. As a life-long Democrat, Eric was excited to be one of the first 50 people to join Barack Obama’s historic campaign for the presidency in 2007. After the campaign, Eric joined the administration, advising three Secretaries of Defense over six years of service at the Pentagon. Eric and his wife Tracy currently live in St. Petersburg with their two young children
