Local business owners visit DC

  • Wednesday, March 26, 2014

Luke Gonzales, Senator Graham, Manny Gonzales and Catherine Jakaitis PROVIDED

Manny Gonzales, owner of Tiger Lily Florist, his son Luke and fellow Mount Pleasant resident Catherine Jakitis went to Washington DC recently to meet with representatives about small-business issues. These issues included immigration reform and the Affordable Care Act. South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham stopped by for this great photo op.

Luke is a junior at Wando and is in the ROTC program. His father Manny said, “It was a great chance for him to sit in the offices of our senators and congressmen and experience how our government works on a daily basis.”

Catherine Jakaitis is the Global Marketing Director for Floralife in Walterboro.
