Speak in Fort Myers Tomorrow

The Sunshine State is still facing tough economic times, but U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson is expected to sound an optimistic note in a major speech before business, civic and political leaders gathering in Fort Myers tomorrow. The state's senior senator is scheduled to deliver opening remarks at the Campaign for Leadership 2011, sponsored by the area's chamber of commerce, the Naples Daily News and various other prominent organizations including the League of Women Voters. In his 1 p.m. speech Nelson will cite recent positive developments. In prepared remarks, he says, "As leaders in the community, we need to encourage folks to get some confidence back – whether it's about investing, running a small business, hiring new employees, or buying a house and taking out a mortgage. We are seeing some positive developments. And I think Washington finally gets it.”
