I was honored to receive the Mark Wandall Citizen Advocate Award by the Manatee Chamber of Commerce this morning. The award is named after Mark Wandall, whose life was lost in a tragic car accident. His wife Melissa, a strong advocate for lights being installed at traffic lights, introduced me. All representatives from the local area were at the Manatee Chamber legislative meeting. The event was hosted by Will Robinson, a Notre Dame classmate of my daughter, now a prominent attorney.
