Monroe County Commissioner Heather Carruthers, County Administrator Roman Gastesi and Monroe County Legislative Affairs Director Lisa Tennyson outlined the County’s state legislative priorities for the 2019 session at today’s Legislative Delegation meeting hosted by State Rep. Holly Raschein and State Sen. Anitere Flores. Monroe County Commissioners Michelle Coldiron and David Rice also attended the meeting held at Marathon City Hall.
Tennyson presented and explained the County’s priorities – which were approved by the Monroe County Board of County Commissioners – for the upcoming session that runs March 5 – May 3:
“Monroe County is grateful to have such committed representatives in the State legislature and is appreciative of their leadership,” Tennyson said. “We have had many successes in the past several years with funding and legislation precisely because of the leadership and dedication of Rep. Raschein and Sen. Flores to the Keys’ communities. We are optimistic we will continue to see success.”
