October 9, 2022

GOODLAND, Fla.—Today, Senator Rick Scott visited Stan’s Idle Hour Seafood, Kirk’s Fish Company and the Crabby Lady in Goodland where he met with families and local business owners who were impacted by Hurricane Ian.


Senator Rick Scott said, “Each time a hurricane brings devastation upon our state, the incredible resiliency and strength of Florida families carries us forward. Like it did in so many communities across Southwest Florida, Ian brought devastating storm surge to Goodland. The damage here is heartbreaking. Homes and businesses are destroyed, but the entrepreneurs and families I met today are coming together to rebuild and recover. Floridians are tough, but we can’t get through this alone. That’s why I am fighting every day, and with every tool at my disposal, to make sure that the federal government keeps showing up and provides our communities with every resource needed to rebuild and recover. We have a long road ahead, but we will get through this together.”
