Jeb Bush to give keynote at Broward Workshop

Former Gov. Jeb Bush will give the keynote address at the Broward Workshop's annual State of Our County address  March 21. The event starts at 7:15 a.m. for networking and the program starts at 8 and will be held at the Signature Grand in Davie. The Broward Workshop is a longtime business group and their events draw many business leaders and local elected officials. 

PolitiFact is keeping an eye on Bush since he is a presidential contender. We have fact-checked him 11 times, and the majority of his claims have been rated Half True, Mostly True or True. He has received one Pants on Fire for his claim that President Barack Obama was closing the embassy to the Vatican.

From the Broward Workshop press release:

Honorable Jeb Bush, former Governor of Florida will provide the keynote address.  

Tony Carvajal, Executive Vice President of the Florida Chamber Foundation will present the “Broward County Economic Benchmarks.” 

Attendees include business and civic leaders, elected officials and community stakeholders.

Broward Workshop is a private, non-profit, non-partisan business organization established in 1981.  It consists of the chief decision makers representing 100 of BrowardCounty's major businesses and professions.

Through the Workshop, business leaders seek to facilitate positive solutions to BrowardCounty's critical issues and to serve as a catalyst to encourage the cooperative effort between various entities working for county-wide, specific, long-range common goals.
