Legislative Days Update

From Tom Mason, President

AFC sent a delegation to Tallahassee on April 8-9. They were Dr. Jackson Sasser, Chuck Clemons, Dr. Dan Rodkin, Tom Mason, Jessica Vander Biezen, Dr. David Price, Nina Trombi, Carol Pugh, Joan Moore, Cathy Hyde, and Jason Frank.

On day one, we met with all our statewide colleagues at the Tallahassee Community College Capitol Center where we learned insights and Capitol protocol from several of AFC’s contract lobbyists and other experts. We got some networking in at a reception held at the AFC building afterward. On Thursday morning, we were treated to a private tour of the House Floor by Speaker Larry Cretul.   After that, we rallied with our Student Government Reps including Austin Browning. The delegation met with Rep’s Clovis Watson, Elizabeth Porter and Keith Perry.

The trip was a huge success and everyone left with a better understanding of how things work in Tallahassee and we hope our Representatives now have a better understanding of Santa Fe College’s needs and challenges.
