I was born January 22, 1952 in Plant City Florida. I am divorced and have 3 grown children and 4 grandchildren. I am a member of the Homosassa Civic Club. I am involved with the Seafood Festival, the Boys and Girls Club of Club of Citrus County, Mullet Toss and and Cayla's Coats. I owned and operated a masonry business and a utility water company. I am retired and live in Old Homosassa on the water. I have seen the decline in the river water quality because of the Lyngbya and the muck. I very much want to do everything I can to clean up the Homosassa River and make it healthy and viable.
