At the end of last week, U.S. Rep. Kat Cammack, R-Fla., took a tour of JAXPORT and focused on its current efforts to deepen its harbor.

Cammack weighed in on the port after her tour of it on Friday.

“I want to thank the team at JAXPORT for having me during today’s visit. Not only did my team and I learn so much about the critical operations happening here every day, but we got to see firsthand the hard work that goes into keeping a large port like this one running smoothly,” said Cammack.

The freshman congresswoman also noted that she rode a cargo crane at the Blount Island facility.

“The team took me up in one of the cranes to see the operation up close. Items you have in your homes, that you pick up at the store—those things are coming through this port every day,” Cammack said.

First elected to Congress in November after her longtime boss then U.S. Rep. Ted Yoho, R-Fla., retired, Cammack represents parts of North Florida ranging from Clay County outside of Jacksonville to Gainesville and the northern part of Marion County.
