Florida's 20th district contains portions of Broward and Palm Beach Counties, and includes parts of Miramar, Fort Lauderdale, and West Palm Beach. Geographically, the district is distinctive in that it includes both urban and rural areas. It is home to the Everglades, the largest subtropical wilderness in the United States and a World Heritage Site, and the Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge. The district also includes Lake Okeechobee, the seventh largest freshwater lake in the United States – and the largest in the State of Florida.
The district's economy is driven by a variety of industries, including agriculture, construction, manufacturing, trade, and tourism. I am truly honored to represent such a unique district, which is not only diverse in its industries but also in the makeup of its communities.
