Matilda Garcia - "I am a third generation Floridian.  When my grandfather came from Spain to Cuba to Tampa there were only 29 families living in Tampa.  That was before Henry Plant built his Plant Hotel(now the University of Tampa) and before he built his railroads.  I know what's good for Florida.  Deborah Cope will represent us well in Tallahassee.  She has the intelligence, tenacity and ability to work with others to successfully sell her ideas.  I wish I could vote for her more than once.  I'm recommending her to all my freinds and relatives."
