A running compilation of Easter-themed messages from Florida’s elected officials and politicians.
Governor Rick Scott:
“Ann and I wish everyone celebrating Easter a joyful weekend with family and friends. Easter is a time to reflect on all of our blessings and remember the gift of grace given in Jesus Christ. … With Spring, comes a feeling of rebirth and new beginnings, and as our state continues to add jobs we are thankful for our families and friends and the many blessings we remember during Easter.”
Florida Democratic Party Chair Allison Tant:
“As millions around the world celebrate Easter, we mark this day by offering thanks to God for our blessings and remembering the love and respect we all owe each other. So to each of you I wish a happy and healthy holiday, and may God bless us all.”
Representative Jimmy Patronis:
“May the day that the Lord has resurrected bring you happiness, love and joy. May your basket be full of blessings this Easter!”
Former Senator and now gubernatorial candidate Nan Rich:
“This is an important week in the lives of Christians and Jews across our state and around the world. I sincerely hope you are able to take time to celebrate these special holidays with your family and loved ones.
“While this is a joyous time for many, it is also a time that we mourn the passing of my friend and former colleague, Senator Larcenia Bullard. She was a strong Democrat and a compassionate woman who cared deeply for her family, her friends, and her constituents. She will be missed.
“Best wishes to you and your family.”
