Lost ALL the battles but WON the WAR!!

blog-licensebus

As you may have read in my last messages I have been working with the Florida Dept. Of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles to find a way to get my driver’s license renewed. Since I could not get into the HSMV office I kept hitting dead ends. I contacted my State Representative, Mike Fasano and he was also told on innumerable occasions that it would not be possible. FINALLY we tried one more angle and won the approval from the Director of the FLHSMV to have their mobile bus come to my home to process my renewal. That happened yesterday, Aug. 2, 2013. It was a huge day for me as I now have a valid Fl license and therefore have more options for my own recovery.

I want to give my heartfelt thanks again to Representative Fisano for all his help. I have never had a government official act so quickly on an issue. I am truly impressed with his caring and follow-through.  He kept in touch with me promptly and regularly until my goal was accomplished.

I hope in the future that our states…(especially a state like Florida), find a way to provide more home services for those who cannot get out into the community for any number of reasons. It would be invaluable!
