Elected leaders across the state mourned the loss of trailblazing state Sen. Dorothy Hukill. Her courageous battle with cancer prevented her from traveling to Tallahassee during the 2017 legislative session. However, it never stopped her from representing constituents during treatment and connecting with phone calls and social media.
In 2018 as Education Committee chair, she presented initiatives to improve student financial literacy and expand the Bright Futures Scholarship Program.
I had the privilege of working as her communications director during the 2012 senate race. She was relentless on the campaign trail and a media relations master. She will be missed.
