Maxwell considers the new leaders in the legislature and the future leaders in cue. And he takes and offers familiar legislative names during these remarks– Jason Brodeur, Don Gaetz, Will Weatherford, Andy Gardiner, David Simmons, Chris Dorworth, and Scott Plakon to name a few. Maxwell shifts his name taking to Washington and includes Sandy Adams, Bill Nelson, Marco Rubio, and Charlie Crist.

During the audience Q&A, Maxwell addresses the performance of Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer and the resurgence of Congressman Allan Grayson. And he focuses on local issues related to charter schools, education, and immigration.

This presentation was recorded on Thursday, December 6, 2012 before an audience of 90 members and guests at the “Good Morning Seminole” membership breakfast of the Seminole County Regional Chamber of Commerce held at the Orlando Marriott Hotel at Lake Mary.
