In 1922, the Florida State Board of Health advised that "only men interested in rendering a real service should be considered" as potential mosquito control inspectors. Effective mosquito control work was "no job for a politician," which is just fine to me.
I teach English and ESE with Lee County Schools where I am also a TALC building rep. I'm also a 4th generation Floridian, husband, a graduate of the University of Florida, and La Belle, FL native. I come from a family of educators, who spend their careers serving the public. My mother and sister are teachers and my grandfather was Superintendent of schools in Hendry County.
I'm running for Lee County Mosquito Control not because I want to be someone important, but because I want to do something. I love my job and my students but there is more to be done.
