Experienced, results-focused leadership from the District 1 neighbor you know!




Dear Friends and Neighbors,

Serving the citizens of Escambia County is and has been one of the greatest honors and privileges I have ever been afforded in my lifetime.  Thank you for giving me the honor and privilege of serving you as your representative for District 1 on the Escambia Board of County Commissioners.  I also appreciate your support of my previous service as your representative on Escambia’s School Board.  I thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for your continued trust and support!

We are running for re-election to the County Commission in 2020, to expand upon the progress we’ve made over the last several years-- and I am asking you for your vote and your continued support.

If you humble me again by allowing me to continue to serve you, I promise to continue to be a fierce, passionate, outspoken, dedicated and committed advocate for you-- the residents and taxpayers of Escambia County and District 1.   

With your support, we will continue our focus on modernizing our storm-water and traffic infrastructure, managing growth intelligently, streamlining the governmental bureaucracy, keeping taxes low, enhancing public safety, diversifying our jobs base, improving our communities, and making Escambia County the best it can be! 

Thank you!

Very Respectfully,
Jeff Bergosh

About Me

My photo
I am the District 1 Commissioner on the Escambia Board of County Commissioners. I was elected to the Commission as the District 1 Member on November 8, 2016. If the Good Lord wills it-- I will serve in this capacity until November of 2020. Prior to this, I was the school board member for the same district, elected in November of 2006, subsequently re-elected in 2010 and elected unopposed in 2014. I am also the full-time Facilities Management Annex Manager locally for a Huntsville, Alabama- based woman-owned defense contractor. I am a 1986 Graduate of Pensacola High School; I have a BA from San Diego State University and a Master of Science in Public Administration from the University of West Florida. My wife Sally and I have three children, Tori, Nick, and Brandon. I have a passion for and a vested interest in our neighborhoods as a long-term resident of Beulah in Escambia's District 1. Call me on my cell phone, any time, for community-related concerns for which I can be of assistance at 850-293-1459
