Happy Easter from…

US Senator Marco Rubio:

My wife Jeanette and I send our best wishes to our fellow Christians in Florida and around the world celebrating Easter with their families.  I also want to wish a Happy Easter to our service men and women whose service has taken them away from their families during this blessed holiday.

During this Holy Week, I am especially grateful for my family and friends, the freedoms we enjoy as Americans, and the privilege of representing Florida in the U.S. Senate. I also commemorate the memories of those we have lost in the past year and find solace in knowing that as we celebrate the Resurrection, we should rejoice in knowing that our dearly departed loved ones have been welcomed into God’s Kingdom.

May you and your family continue to be blessed with God’s gift of love and peace, especially on this special holiday.

Governor Rick Scott:

“Ann and I join Christians throughout our state in celebrating the Easter holiday this weekend. As we celebrate our salvation and honor the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ, we are reminded of the many blessings we have as Floridians and Americans.

“We are especially grateful that more people in our state are getting back to work. While unemployment is the lowest it has been in three years, it is important for us to remember that many families are still struggling and to lend a helping hand whenever and wherever we can.

“Ann and I, along with Lt. Governor Jennifer Carroll, also invite you to join us in praying for the men and women of the Armed Forces and the Florida National Guard who are fighting to defend the cause of freedom around the globe. We pray for their safety and for their families, recognizing they are unable to be together during this Easter holiday.

“For families throughout Florida who are celebrating during this Easter weekend, I extend best wishes for a joyous and happy Easter from both my family and from Lt. Governor Carroll’s family.”

Attorney General Pam Bondi:

“This Sunday I look forward to joining my family and friends to celebrate Easter, a time when all Christians give thanks for the gift of salvation through Christ. May we all be grateful for the blessings bestowed upon us.”

Congressman Connie Mack:

“From Mary and I, we wish you and your families a very happy Passover and Easter!”
