The Everglades Seafood Festival in Everglades City was once again a smashing success!
It always amazes me to see all the people that show up on this tiny island and have such a great time. Mayor Howie Grimm was there with plenty of smiles and lots of energy. What a nice guy he is! He invited many dignitaries, but I must say that Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart always impresses me and attends each year. I know it’s a long way to drive from Miami to be a part of this event, but he never misses! With him was his Collier County Aide Enrique Padron.
Also in attendance was E-City’s own Commissioner Bill McDaniel, plus Commissioner Taylor, and of course I was there to support the effort as well. The head of our Tourism Department, Jack Wert, attends each year and was there as usual, as was our Director of Emergency Operations, Dan Summers, and the director of the County’s Growth Management Division Jamie French.
