Chris Sprowls Names Two State Reps to the Florida Council on the Social Status of Black Men and Boys

Last week, Florida House Speaker Chris Sprowls, R-Palm Harbor, appointed state Reps. James Bush III, D-Opa Locka, and Dana Trabulsy, R-Fort Pierce, to the Florida Council on the Social Status of Black Men and Boys.

“Representatives Bush and Trabulsy have been fearless advocates for Florida’s youth,” said Sprowls. “As a teacher and minister, Dr. Bush has served as a mentor, public servant, and faith leader in his community. Now, he brings his experience and expertise to the benefit of Floridians statewide. Representative Trabulsy has worked tirelessly as an entrepreneur and has focused on uplifting Florida’s students during her time in the House by sponsoring HB 3 –delivering free books to children reading below grade level. I am proud to appoint these two to the Florida Council on the Social Status of Black Men and Boys.”

“I am honored to have been selected as a member of the Florida Council on the Social Status of Black Men and Boys,” said Bush. “I am excited to serve in this capacity so we continue engaging and educating our next generation.”

“Thank you Speaker Sprowls for the appointment to the Florida Council on the Social Status of Black Men and Boys,” Trabulsy said. “I am proud to continue fighting for Florida’s youth and help them achieve their full potential.”

Established in 2006 by the Florida Legislature, the Florida Council on the Social Status of Black Men and Boys studies conditions that negatively impact black males in Florida. Specifically, the Council focuses its efforts on reducing high school dropout rates, violent crime rates, and incarceration rates.
