Newly elected U.S. Representative Ron DeSantis, representing Congressional District 6, serving the major part of Volusia County will Keynote the Annual Republican Lincoln Day Dinner to be held Friday, May 10, 2013 at the Daytona Beach Resort & Conference Center in Daytona Beach. Congressman DeSantis first bill, co-sponsored by 28 Republicans, was passed by the House of Representatives on February 16. The bill blocked a planned pay raise for Federal employees of 0.5 percent and saved taxpayers $11,000,000,000. The increase was scheduled to take effect at the end of March through an Executive Order from President Obama. This bill rescinds the President’s action and makes clear that the federal workforce – including cabinet secretaries, Members of Congress, and other salaried employees – will not receive an across-the-board pay increase this year.
UPDATE: Governor Rick Scott will also be joining us at the 2013 Lincoln Day Dinner as a special guest speaker. We are honored to have him visit Volusia County! Hurry! With this line-up, tickets won’t last.
