7/3/2014

Contact: Chris Cate

TALLAHASSEE – Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater today released the following statement in recognition of Independence Day:
 
“As we approach Independence Day, let us remember and appreciate all that was sacrificed 238 years ago so that America could escape religious and economic oppression and be able to experience the freedom to which we’ve become accustomed as a nation. John Adams envisioned that this anniversary would forever be “solemnized with Pomp and Parade, with shews, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires and illuminations from one end of this continent to the other from this time forward forever more.”
 
“It is my wish that all Floridians have a safe and happy Independence Day filled with joy and appreciation for our great nation and its freedom.”
