State Senator Clemens Shares His Story

Gillian Corallo and Karen Garcia

Florida Senator Jeff Clemens visited Mrs. Weber’s, Ms. Gleason’s, and Ms. Karas’ classes on December 7th. Students listened to Clemens speak on his views and how the State Senate works.

The State legislation is a part-time job, so Senators only make $29,000 per year. Most of them have a second job, and Clemens happens to work in energy conservation. He supports the online voting registration bill, is an original medicinal marijuana sponsor, and helps to balance the $77 billion budget.
