Imagine nobody wanted to be a president of the United States and nobody wanted to be a Senator! What if those jobs were obligatory like jury duty and only highly qualified individuals were made to serve. Corruption- free, best minds at work for the good of the state!
OK, stop dreaming, back to the reality. Here is what we have. First, let’s talk about the state senators. The applicants for the state senate job run the election campaign where they tell us why we should vote for them and give them the job.
Florida Senators are elected by the citizens of Florida to represent them and the area (district) where they live. Each member of the Senate must live in the district that he or she represents. Senators are elected to serve four-year terms. Currently, 40 Senators serve the people of Florida. Usually there are 49 state senators per state.
State senator Lizbeth Benacquisto (republican) represents Lee county. Passidomo Kathleen (republican) represents Collier, Hendry and part of Lee county. If you live in those counties, you might want to check those ladies up.
Marco Rubio and Bill Nelson are US senators representing Florida. Each state, regardless of population or size, has two senators. There 100 senators representing the 50 states. We all saw Marco Rubio on TV during the presidential election; I don’t need to tell you about Marco.
But who is Bill Nelson, and most importantly what are his achievements? I will dive into it next.
