Cary Pigman (born November 1, 1958) is a Republican member of the Florida House of Representatives, representing the 55th District, which includes Glades County, Highlands County, Okeechobee County, and western St. Lucie County, since 2012.

History

Pigman was born in Florida. He worked as the Medical Director of Hardee County Fire/Rescue and worked at the Samaritan Touch Care Center as a volunteer physician.

Florida House of Representatives

In 2012, following the reconfiguration of the Florida House of Representatives districts, Pigman ran in the newly created 55th District. He was opposed by former State Representative Randy Johnson in the Republican primary. On election night, it appeared that Pigman emerged victorious over Johnson by 26 votes, which prompted an automatic recount; a manual recount increased Pigman's margin of victory to 34 votes.[1] In the general election, he faced off against Democratic nominee Crystal Drake. Despite their different partisan affiliations, both Drake and Pigman emphasized their similarities, with Pigman observing, "We both have connections with agriculture either direct or as a family, so we both bring sensitivity to issues of agriculture. She's a Democrat and I am a Republican and other than that I leave it up to the voter to distinguish between us"; Drake noted, "I'm a very conservative Democrat so we are pretty close on just about every issue except education."[2] Ultimately, Pigman defeated Drake by a fairly solid margin, winning 56% of the vote. In 2014, Pigman was re-elected to his second term without opposition.
