|FLORIDA ISSUE||We have many outstanding health care providers in Florida, but 20% of Floridians ages 18 to 64 do not have health insurance. This is primarily because of high costs. One of my pet projects is to create an affordable alternative for all the people who currently do not have health insurance.|
|FAVORITE VACATION||My two favorite vacations were both cruises to the Greek islands. Both were on smaller ships. The food, scenery and history are amazing.|
