Broward Days' Impactful
Over 80 business leaders, politicians, and staff brought a unified message to Tallahassee this week and had an impact on elected officials and others about South Florida’s positions as part of Broward Days 2016.
On tap was our request for support of $250 million for Enterprise Florida incentive funds, tax cuts for manufacturers and business leases, defeat of 10 percent expansion of usage of the tourist development tax for emergency services, a myriad of health and human services topics and education.
We had a good turnout from the Broward County Legislative Delegation and Broward County Mayor Marty Kiar, County Commissioner Chip LaMarca and Miramar Mayor Wayne Messam were part of our Delegation.
We intend to build on our successes during this most expensive election year in our history. Our President, one US Senate seat, all 27 congressional seats, at least 20 state senate seats, all 120 house seats, four state Supreme Court justices and a number of constitutional amendments are in play. There will also be local issues working their way onto the ballot in November.
We will continue to partner with Broward Days as we rebuild the program into a year-long program effort. We will continue to make our presence known in both Tallahassee and Washington, DC, and bring key elected officials and administrators to South Florida so they can better understand our concerns.
Your participation is necessary in these critical months moving forward. Informing your employees is a good way to help us educate and get-out-the-vote (GOTV). To that end, please go to www.FloridaWins.org and use those tools for your company.
