|Quote||"I was raised on the beaches of South Florida and the protection of our natural resources is critically important to me. Good environmental policy isn't just morally correct - it's good business for America, and especially good for Florida. It preserves the economy, creates jobs, and protects Florida’s fragile ecosystems and tourism industry."|
Leadership: Patrick Murphy grew up in South Florida, fostering his appreciation for clean beaches and healthy coastal communities. He is currently Vice President of the environmental disaster relief company Coastal Environmental Services. Following the Deepwater Horizon oil calamity, he spent six months removing oil with Coastal Environmental Services and is well-versed in the environmental clean ups that are often so important in Florida. He is committed to not only preventing future oil disasters, but also protecting the Florida Everglades, preventing nutrient runoff on the Treasure Coast, and working with Congress to ensure energy independence.
