Sheriffs to honor Rep. Galvano

The Florida Sheriffs Association, Manatee Sheriff Brad Steube and Sarasota Sheriff Tom Knight today will present state Rep. Bill Galvano, R-Bradenton, with the FSA Legislative Award for his leadership and support of public safety on gambling-related issues during the 2009 legislative session.

"Representative Galvano made extraordinary efforts to learn and understand the details and ramifications of the complex federal tribal and gaming regulatory laws, and was an influential member of leadership who helped direct the outcome of the gambling issues in the Legislature," the FSA said in a news release announcing the award.

The award will be presented to Galvano, chairman of the House committee overseeing the state's gambling compact with the Seminoles, during an event at 2 p.m. at Dolphin Aviation at Sarasota Bradenton International Airport.
