Floridians,

This week is National Retirement Security Week so I encourage all Floridians to consider your future savings for retirement. Retirement planning is vital to a solid financial future, and it's alarming that roughly 44 percent of non-retired adults say their retirement saving is not on track. It’s never too early to start retirement planning and by making saving a priority now, you can build a nest egg to allow for more financial stability later in life.

National Drug Take Back Day image Also, this Saturday, October 26, I encourage all Floridians to take advantage of National Drug Take Back Day. This day provides an important opportunity to bring unused or expired prescription drugs and vape products to a drop-off location near you for proper disposal. Most sites will be open between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., but times may vary by location. The Drug Enforcement Administration’s (DEA) Take Back Day is a nationwide event which allows Americans to help prevent drug addiction and overdose deaths.

I encourage all Floridians to research your retirement options and spread the word on National Drug Take Back Day. This day is an important opportunity to prevent drug misuse and keep Florida’s communities healthy.



Sincerely,

Jimmy
