    “This pandemic has affected every corner of our county. Our people are hurting, and the need has never been greater. This organization will be essential when the time comes to lobby our legislators in Tallahassee for all that our citizens need and deserve. I am prepared and proud to be a part of that effort,” said Commissioner/Secretary Drosky.
