You’re an important part of our community.
As your duly elected State Representative, it is my duty to ensure that your government is serving you effectively and responding to your individual needs.
Particularly now, at a time when the threat of coronavirus can overwhelm our health care system and may even cost lives in Seminole County, we need to take extraordinary steps. That’s why I am writing you today.
I hope this letter finds you well and, like all of us, looking forward to the day when life can get back to normal. However, recent restrictions may be affecting your ability to cope. As someone who provided care to a family member (my late wife and mother of our six kids, Susie, passed away from the effects of Alzheimer’s Disease), I understand from personal experience how difficult it may be to ask for help – or to even know if it’s needed.
I want to help you in any way I can.
If you are going without life-saving food or medicine, call me immediately on my cell: (407) 221-8452. If you’re healthy and self-sufficient, do you know of others who may need help? Are local agencies providing the information and assistance you expect?
I have been in Tallahassee since the first of the year, helping to balance our state budget and meet our state’s needs in a responsible way. I am proud to be among the Legislature’s most reliable conservatives, but I am more proud today to be among those leading the fight against this threat to all Floridians. Coronavirus is our one true enemy, and we can only defeat it if we work together.
Below you can find some important reminders from the national medical community about how you can stay safe and stop the spread. At the same time, I have enclosed a response card with a few key questions that will help me serve you better during this crisis and respond to any concerns you have.
If you can, please complete the card and return it to me today. I welcome your input.
Please take whatever precautions are necessary to ensure your continued good health. These are difficult days, but together, we will get through them and we will emerge stronger. God bless you.
Rep. Scott Plakon
