This Week in South Florida: Jared Moskowitz

Even as the Hurricane Ian’s catastrophic tally is still being calculated, the discussions about whether and how to rebuild what was lost are underway.

PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. – Even as the Hurricane Ian’s catastrophic tally is still being calculated, the discussions about whether and how to rebuild what was lost are underway.

One person in a position to weigh in on those questions is Jared Moskowitz, Florida’s former disaster chief, former State Rep. and now Broward County Commissioner and candidate for Congress who took an aerial tour of the damage.

On Nov. 6th the voters of Florida’s 23rd congressional district, which covers Fort Lauderdale north to Palm Beach County, will elect a new congressman.

They’ve been represented for the last 12 years by Congressman Ted Deutch, who is s retiring. Four candidates are running to replace Deutch, two independents, a Republican and a Democrat, who is the odds-on favorite.

Moskowitz joined This Week in South Florida hosts Michael Putney and Glenna Milberg to discuss, and their conversation can be seen at the top of this page.
