“You get good employees by being a good example; you lead by doing. I hire local kids, teach them what I expect: A good first impression, courtesy and strong work ethic.

We have enough housing; any more and this place will be completely ruined.” “To the person confused about why Key Largo or Summerland Key would be against workforce housing, please stop with the liberal language.
