Panama City-- With election day just one day away, U.S. Congressman Allen Boyd hit the pavement in Bay County Monday.

Boyd spent part of his last day campaigning at Eastern Shipbuilding's shipyard in Panama City.

He talked briefly with employees about his plans to bring more jobs to the county. Boyd says he chose to spend his afternoon at the shipyard because Eastern Shipbuilding is a major employer in Bay county and an example of what Bay county needs to develop economically.

"President of Eastern Shipbuilding invited me over to come and have lunch with some of his employees and talk about the election so I think that's an excellent place to do it so I’m delighted to be over here amongst these folks who obviously are building something for America," said Boyd.

Boyd is headed home to Tallahassee where he will be on election day.
