Beach Chamber Hosted U.S. Senator Marco Rubio
On Tuesday, May 1, 2012 the Panama City Beach Chamber of Commerce hosted U.S. Senator Marco Rubio for a Chamber Meeting held at the Wyndham Bay Point Resort, from 10:00 to 11:00 am. The event was presented by Harrison Sale McCloy, and sponsored by The Glass Center and C.W. Roberts Contracting.
When Senator Marco Rubio launched his campaign for the U.S. Senate in 2009, he was considered a long shot and was predicted to lose big. Senator Rubio prevailed on a pledge to stand up to Washington’s reckless spending and its assault on the free enterprise system. Today, he is proud to represent Florida in the U.S. Senate where he’s working to fulfill his promise to restore fiscal discipline and give job creators more certainty and confidence to open new businesses or expand existing ones.
Senator Rubio served in the Florida House of Representatives from 2000 to 2008 and was elected to the U.S. Senate in 2010. His committee assignments currently include Commerce, Science and Transportation; Foreign Relations; Intelligence; and Small Business and Entrepreneurship. He and his wife, Jeanette, have four young children and live in West Miami, Fl.
This event is open to Beach Chamber members, and R.S.V.P. is required by calling the Beach Chamber at (850) 235-1159 or e-mailing Catherine@PCBeach.org.
