To the editor:
Having known Dane Eagle for almost 20 years, I believe he is the most qualified candidate for District 77 Florida State Representative. Work experience and professional background must be considered when evaluating a political candidate. Dane has experience in both the public and private sector.
Dane earned his real estate license at the age of 19 and then decided to enroll at Florida Gulf Coast University from where Dane transferred to the University of Florida. After graduating with a B.S. in Economics, Dane was hired as a staff aid to the Florida governor. His excellent communication and organization skills quickly earned him recognition and a promotion to Deputy Chief of Staff (the youngest in Florida history).
Additional duties included serving as a liaison between the governor's office and the Office of Tourism, Trade and Economic Development and the Florida Housing and Finance Corporation. This noteworthy experience gives Dane clear understanding of how our Florida government functions.
In 2010, Dane came home to Cape Coral to help manage his family's real estate business.
His knowledge of key factors driving the Cape Coral economy is spot on. Dane knows the importance of diversifying and expanding our business community and how that will create much needed permanent jobs in our area. Dane's got my vote !
