ENDORSEMENT ALERT: Former Pinellas County Commissioner and Former Redington Shores Mayor Jay Beyrouti Endorses Kevin Hayslett for U.S. Congress

Beyrouti Joins Growing List of Local Leaders Backing Hayslett in FL-13


Clearwater, FL – Today, Former Pinellas County Commissioner and Former Redington Shores Mayor Jay Beyrouti announced his endorsement of Kevin Hayslett for Congress in Florida’s 13th Congressional District. The Honorable Jay Beyrouti joins Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri and former County Sheriff Jim Coats in endorsing the former prosecutor and local business owner for FL-13.

Mr. Beyrouti has been serving his community for over two decades. He first served as Mayor of Redington Shores from 1994 to 2006 and Pinellas County GOP Chair from 2008 to 2012. In 2018, he was appointed by Governor Rick Scott to the Pinellas County Commission after the passing of County Commissioner John Morroni. In addition, he’s served on the Board of Directors for Enterprise Florida since 2010 and the Board of Directors for Space Florida since 2011.

“Kevin Hayslett is the only Republican we can trust to win back Florida’s 13th district and stay true to his conservative values. He is a Pinellas County native and the only candidate running who understands the needs of our community,” stated the Honorable Jay Beyrouti. ”I’m proud to endorse Kevin and I urge any voter who is looking for a real conservative – someone who is not afraid to stand up to the radical Biden/Pelosi agenda crushing families and businesses – to vote for Kevin Hayslett.”

Hayslett continues to build on his momentum in the FL-13 after his announcement in mid-January, already gaining the support of multiple local leaders, including former Mayor of St. Petersburg Bill Foster.

“As a political outsider, I’m honored to receive the support of so many local leaders,” Hayslett stated, “When it comes to Biden and the Democrats, enough is enough. It’s clear we need new leadership in D.C. and I’m excited to be that leader for Pinellas County.”
