Agriculture Commissioner candidate Matt Caldwell’s campaign is taking suggestions about where he should do work days in industries overseen by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.
The North Fort Myers Republican and real-estate appraiser announced Thursday he will embark on what the campaign is calling the “#2LaneTravels Work Days Tour.”
The first stop will be Friday at Key Largo Fisheries, where his usual bow tie is expected to be replaced by clothes more befitting time spent processing fresh and frozen seafood and bait products.
“I am going to be highlighting the jobs across our state that may not be glamorous but are critical to moving Florida’s economy,” Caldwell said in a release. “While processing seafood isn’t easy, and you’re certainly going to get yourself dirty, our great state wouldn’t be what it is today without the hard working men and women that are responsible for the wholesome and delicious food that is served on tables across America.”
In the release, Caldwell’s campaign provided an email address — Terry@VoteCaldwell.org — for suggestions on where he should undertake additional work days.
