We missed you this summer. Time to get together again; have lunch, hear a good speaker and just enjoy each others company. Join us Thursday, September 19, at the Eau Gallie Yacht Club, where you know the food is the best in town.Our speaker, Representative Tom Goodson, will talk about the past legislative year in Tallahassee, and there will be time for Q & A.
Tom is a legendarily hard worker, a trait that he first developed as a young man putting himself through college. After graduating from Brevard Community College and Florida State University, and marrying, Tom and Evelyn, also an FSU graduate, returned to Brevard County to build their lives and family together. In 1988, Tom took a giant step forward creating his own business, Goodson Paving. Today, Goodson Paving, and its associated companies, are successful entities, contributing to the creation of jobs in the community, and also, a generous contributor to many worthwhile causes and projects in the community. Not content to spend his time doing office work, Tom still spends time in the field, doing hands on work on his company's projects.
Tom currently serves in the Florida House for District 29. Tom also served on the Canaveral Port Authority. He was first elected to the authority's board in 2002, defeating an eight year incumbent. Tom's peers on the board immediately recognized his capable leadership ability, entrusting him leadership positions during his entire tenure
Tom's experience in the Florida House and the Canaveral Port Authority has left him well prepared to tackle the most vexing issues facing our communities and state, particularly those related to the fallout from the space shuttle's retirement last year.
SAVE THE DATE: FRIDAY, OCT 11. SHARON DAY, CO-CHAIR OF THE REPUBLICAN NATIONAL COMMITTEE WILL SPEAK AT A DINNER MEETING. ALL CLUBS INVITED.
