Slosberg gets sweet on the House floor

by Dara Kam | April 17th, 2013

Rep. Irv Slosberg sweetened his trademark slogan for a traditional gift exchange with his fellow state reps on the House floor this morning.

Inside clear plastic baggies imprinted with white stars Slosberg dropped on members’ desks were red, white and blue M & M’s stamped with “Let Irv Serve,” “District 91,” “2013,” or a flag.

The Boca Raton Democrat told Post on Politics last week that he’s known throughout the Capitol and back home for two things – his “Let Irv Serve” campaign motto and his dogged pursuit of seat belt laws. Slosberg’s daughter Dori was killed in a traffic accident in 1996.

As part of his campaign schtick, Slosberg also gave away “schlepper bags” and corned beef sandwiches. Slosberg was elected to the House in 2000, lost a bid for the state Senate in 2006 and returned to the House in 2010.

He called the customized M & M’s a “neat idea” he got from his girlfriend, who ordered the sweets online. It’s a tradition for members to give each other small gifts during floor sessions, Slosberg said.

“Rep. Rooney gave a bottle of beer. Some gave chocolate. Some gave a bottle of rum. This is my gift,” Slosberg said. “Let Irv serve.”
