Legislative Update 

Bay County's Business Position

State Representative Jay Trumbull

Jay Trumbull is a member of the Florida House of Representatives.

Representative Trumbull is serving in his first term, representing District 6, which covers parts of Bay County.  He is only the third Republican ever elected to the Florida House from Bay County.

As a member of the Florida House, Trumbull serves on four committees: Health and Human Services, Veterans and Military Affairs, Health Innovation and the Appropriations Committee for Agriculture and Natural Services.  In his first session, he sponsored five pieces of legislation which were passed into law, including a bill that would reduce the property tax burden for military housing.

Representative Trumbull is a native of Bay County, and outside of his legislative service works at Culligan Water, where he is now the fourth generation of his family to work at the family-owned business started over 60 years ago by his great grandfather, and now run by his father.

Representative Trumbull is a graduate of Auburn University where he earned a Bachelors of Science degree in Entrepreneurship and Family Business.  A combination of his family’s commitment to civic involvement and his concern for the growing impact of government regulation impacting local businesses led to his decision to seek public office.

Jay is married to his high school sweetheart Brittany Fishel Trumbull, who is a civil engineer at Prebble Rish, an engineering consultant firm.  They have been married for three years.  When he isn’t working, Trumbull is an avid outdoorsman.


It has become unnecessarily difficult to operate a business or even raise a family because the government is too much a part of our lives.

I am optimistic about Florida, and I want to do everything I can to make our state and our region the most desirable location for doing business and building a future.

I’ve been working in my family’s water business since I was 14. I’ve done everything from drilling wells to driving a bottled water delivery truck and then serving as a part of the management team.

I believe that the experience I have gained from signing a paycheck, dealing with hiring and firing employees, and dealing with both federal and state regulation makes me uniquely qualified to serve as your state representative.

I understand what taxes or a 60% increase in health insurance costs do to a small business and to their employees. I’ve dealt with insurance companies and government agencies such as DOT, Water Management, DEP, and DOH, which often make everyday life difficult.

It is our government that is causing families to think twice about starting a company or buying a house because we’ve made it too hard on them. I am tired of facing the problems that our government has caused.

As legislature starts considering bills that increase taxes or fees, or considers a bill on worker’s comp, unemployment compensation, or lawsuit reform, it is necessary that we have a state representative that understands how it affects real people who are struggling to make a living.

I want to live in a state that is a leader in job expansion, has the best schools, and is a place where young people want to stay and create families.
