Mike Hutchinson cares about jobs

Hutchinson said the county should do everything it could to maintain the high-quality companies already rooted in the area. For decades, Hutchinson worked for the major government contractor L3, which was based in Sarasota until last year when the company moved to St. Petersburg.

“If they’re here and they’re starting to get a little bit frustrated, we need to keep them here,” Hutchinson said.
