One year ago, #HurricaneMichael devastated FL’s Panhandle. After the storm, I saw people coming together. Floridians are resilient & come together in times of crisis. We have come a long way, but there’s still work to do. I’ll keep fighting so they have the resources to rebuild.
Last week marked one year since Hurricane Michael devastated FL’s Panhandle. I stopped in Blountstown on Friday to see some local community members and officials from various parts of the panhandle who have worked hard to help these communities rebuild.
Meet Ernesto Ackerman owner of @HillusaSales & President of @IVAC Miami. Hillusa was started in 1980 in Miami & due to FL’s great business climate it's experienced constant growth. Ernesto is also a great advocate for the people of #Venezuela in FL. #HispanicHeritageMonth
“Every day I see the contributions that FL’s immigrants make to our communities. Today’s discussion was an amazing opportunity to highlight some of these contributions & provide meaningful ways for Floridians to support our Dreamers & TPS holders." TY Stephanie w/ @FLImmigrant !
Why should low tax states be subsidizing high tax states because they can’t run an efficient government? It’s not fair to Florida. We have been able to turn FL’s economy around, pay down our debt and STILL cut taxes over 100 times! Watch more from my interview with @cvpayne ⬇️
Thanks to the hard work of Florida’s law enforcement officers, FL’s crime rate is at a 47-year low.
Spoke with Gov. @ricardorossello tonight. FL’s thoughts and prayers are with Puerto Rico as Hurricane Maria approaches.
I waived FL’s motor fuel import tax for 5 days to help bring more fuel to our state for storm response & recovery.
