Legislative Update

Insight 4TH quarter 2018
Legislative Report

Hello Everyone,

I can assure you this election cycle was full of energy and passion, and that your FOA was highly engaged in the political process. Thanks to all of you for supporting us and placing your faith in the fact that we act with Florida optometry's best interest at heart. I can’t think of any better form of formal "thank you" then the excerpt modified below:

The Day After: Thank You to Each Of Those Who Placed Their Name On The Ballot

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man or woman who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself or herself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his or her place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat."

President Theodore Roosevelt
Excerpts modifiedfrom the speech "Citizenship in a Republic"
delivered at the Sorbonne, Paris, France, April 23, 1910


Know this… there are no "cold and timid souls" in the leadership or staff of your FOA.


Kenneth W. Lawson, O.D.
