Santa Rosa County School Board Chairman Hugh Winkles is seeking his sixth term in office as the District 2 representative to the school board.
Winkles, who graduated from Santa Rosa County schools and works as a pharmacist at Walgreens in Milton, has served more than 20 years on the board. His reasons for running for re-election are the same as those that first prompted him to run in 1992, he said.
“Public service for the county,” Winkles said was a motivator for his initial campaign and his subsequent re-election campaigns. “The school system has helped me a lot and prepared me for college; it guided me to the profession I am in… I believe in public service and this is a great way for me to give back to the community.”
