The former police detective and top cop in Seminole County was able to gather over 100 volunteers for a door-to-door effort Saturday morning.

In what has never been seen before in a county level Clerk of Court campaign, former police detective Sammy Gibson garnered the support of over 100 supporters Saturday morning.

 

The event was labeled as his first large scale ground operation, following a standing room only event with Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback and Oviedo native, Blake Bortles. Nearly 1,000 people attended the campaign kick-off featuring the rock-star NFL mainstay.

 

Volunteers simultaneously passed out fliers in support of Jesse Phillips, a candidate for Seminole County GOP Committeeman, who is also Gibson's campaign manager. Highlighting Sammy’s 20 years of community service as a Babe Ruth and Pop Warner Coach and Commissioner, as well as his 36 years of service in the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office, voters were introduced to the two-sides of the Purple Heart recipient who has been endorsed by Sheriff Don Eslinger.

 

The momentum on the ground was evident.

 

“It was amazing to see so many people come out for Sammy today,” said Timothy Koepsell, Retired Division Chief for the Oviedo Fire Department.

 

“I have known and worked with him for many years. His experience in law enforcement was really inspiring to a lot of the people throughout the county today.”

 

“I’ve been doing campaigns for a while and have never seen energy on the ground like this. It feels more like a presidential campaign than the Clerk of Court” said Campaign Manager Jesse Phillips.

 

Reports surfaced throughout the day that Sammy is not an unknown commodity in Seminole County. Several volunteers reported being interrupted while introducing Sammy Gibson with expressions of support and even requests to volunteer.

 

“I am so excited and grateful for all of the help we had today,” said Gibson afterwards. “The amazing thing is that we are just getting started. Thank you to all of those who gave their time and energy to help. Your dedication is inspiring and humbling.”
