Driven (without distractions). YCIB Member Mark Merwitzer testifies before Senate Communications, Energy and Public Utilities Committee

We are very proud of one of Palmetto Bay's favorite sons - Mark Merwitzer.  Mark is one of the founding members of Palmetto Bay's Youth Community Involvement Board.  He testified before the Florida State Senate - Communications, Energy and Public Utilities Committee, on Tuesday, October 24, 2017.  

This is not his first time advocating on this issue.  Young Mr. Merwitzer will not be distracted from his mission to save lives and up the protection of those on or near the roadways, to be safe from distracted drivers.

Marks report from Tallahassee (10/24/17): 

Had a fantastic trip to Tallahassee today. To my left if Senator Perry, the sponsor of SB 90, the bill to make texting while driving primary offense. Today it was heard in the Senate Communications, Energy, and Public Utilities Committee. I gave my testimony, along with countless amounts of parents who have lost loved ones to distracted driving. Their testimony was remarkable and touching. The bill passed 7-1. 

1 down 3 to go!
