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.
