from the desk of Representative Byron Donalds

Rep. Byron Donalds meets with local leaders to tour Southwest Florida estuaries and discuss water quality projects.

Since taking the oath of office in January, I’ve had the opportunity to visit our southern border, tour the nation spreading a conservative message, and work to protect the principles of Florida’s 19th Congressional District.

Water is Florida’s most important natural resource. As a longtime Southwest Florida resident, a father, and a concerned citizen I understand the necessity of preserving our waterways. Our community continues to be plagued by harmful algal blooms, red tide, and harmful discharges from Lake Okeechobee. Southwest Florida’s local economy, tourism industry, and health of our community are heavily reliant upon these factors and the impact they have on our water. Since taking office, I’ve met with several local leaders, toured local estuaries, held water roundtables, and introduced legislation to protect red tide monitoring. While in office, I am committed to supporting efforts that combat the hazardous effects of these occurrences to preserve our waterways for generations to come.

Rep. Byron Donalds meets with former President Donald J. Trump.

As we approach this holiday season, let us take a moment to reflect upon blessings. In such a tumultuous year, the holiday festivities serve as a reminder to give thanks for the things in life we often take for granted: our family, our health, and our privilege of being Americans.

Southwest Florida has been my home for nearly twenty years, and I’m honored to have the opportunity to represent this district, give back, and ensure the beauty of this community is preserved for years to follow.
