    Florida House Speaker Richard Corcoran

    SARASOTA, Fla. – Florida House Speaker Richard Corcoran will address a sold-out crowd at The Argus Foundation’s Meet the Minds luncheon on Thursday, March 2.

    During the event from 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. at the Sarasota Yacht Club, Speaker Corcoran will discuss his legislative priorities, including his aggressive pursuit of transparency and accountability in government spending as well his ethics reform proposals which include a “revolving-door” lobbying ban that the Tampa Bay Times recently noted as the strongest in the nation. He will speak to the audience just five days before the start of the Florida Legislative Session.

    “I appreciate the kind invitation of the Argus Foundation and look forward to sharing the House’s governing philosophy, some of our plans going forward and taking questions,” said Speaker Corcoran.

    Elected to the Florida House of Representatives in 2010, Speaker Corcoran represents the 37th District, which includes central Pasco County, since 2012, previously representing the 45th District from 2010-12. He is a member of the Republican Party.

    The Argus Foundation aims to educate and stimulate with informative guest speakers who discuss the important issues impacting the community, state and world.
