Best of February 2017

I dug into some data and found that only a fraction of serviced and settled refugees in Florida came from countries on Trump’s list.
I dug into some other data and found that all Southwest Florida airports increased passenger numbers, but SRQ didn’t.
When I thought I was covering just another luncheon-speaker event, I was surprised to hear Florida Chamber of Commerce CEO Mark Wilson tell the crowd that it’s on businesses to play a part in ending poverty in America. I wasn’t the only one to observe it as an unusual message coming from a business leader.
I looked at some tourist tax data and despite consumer uncertainty before, during and after the election, people still love visiting Manatee County’s beaches.
