I am simultaneously proud and humbled by the overwhelming majority of voters who have put their faith in me to lead Escambia County into the future. The simmering optimism in the county is tangible, as we have never had this confluence of events at any time in our history. We will use the nearly $200M in RESTORE Act funding to not only regain what was lost in the BP Deep Water Horizon oil spill but to launch Escambia County into a new and exciting future. Escambia County will set the example for stewardship of natural resources while growing our clean industry base. We will demonstrate how to bring historically underrepresented groups into the technology fold. The best kept secret in the cyber industry is the work-life balance in Escambia County…we are going to shout it from the mountaintops for the next four years!
