Magar thanks House for standing by her “60 days strong”by John Kennedy | May 1st, 2014
Rep. MaryLynn Magar, a first-term Tequesta Republican, poignantly thanked Florida House members Thursday for standing by her as she recovers from a stroke suffered in January.
Magar took some time off. But she has been at the Capitol for the two-month grind of the legislative session, which is scheduled to end Friday.
Magar, 50, spoke while reminding lawmakers that May is “Stroke Awareness Month.”
“You’ve all helped me so much,” Magar said. “And your prayers and positive thoughts have helped me persevere the past two months.”
She concluded by telling lawmakers, “Thank you for believing me when I said I would be here 60 days strong.”
