Common sense. Seems like these days, we could use a lot more of it. This belief drove an ordinary egg farmer and business owner like me to run for public office in 2012.
One of my goals as Florida Senate Majority Leader is to do everything possible to bring people together to accomplish what’s best for Floridians.
As a businessman, farmer and public official, my experience is that compromise can be reached with simple strategies: take time to listen, be earnest and respectful, and learn to disagree without being disagreeable. A little bit of common sense goes a long way.
