Walton Chamber goes political at luncheon

Published: Thursday, October 11, 2012 at 04:07 PM.


Bill Chapman is a former Walton County Sheriff's deputy and candidate for the office of Sheriff who is now running for the District 1 County Commission seat.

Chapman, a Republican, is also a former Florida State Trooper who has a total of 32 years in law enforcement, and 25 of those spent in a leadership role. Chapman said he played an intricate part in the Sheriff's Office achieving accreditation.

Chapman said he is a former business man, a past president of the DeFuniak Springs Rotary Club and lives in the Valley View community in the northeastern part of the county.

"I plan to be actively involved in the district," he said. "I am a big believer in economic development. I want to see roadblocks taken down to creating new business. We need clean, well-paying businesses outside of the tourism industry."

Chapman's website is www.electbillchapman.com.

His Democratic opponent is Frank Day.
