Meet Representative Gary Aubuchon
When: Tue, March 27, 2012, 2:00pm – 3:30pm
Where: Boca Grande Community Center Auditorium – 131 First Street Boca Grande FL 33921 (map)
The Boca Grande Area Chamber of Commerce will host Florida House Representative Gary Aubuchon who will speak on issues and decisions from the 2012 Florida Legislative Session.
Gary Aubuchon has been a resident of southwest Florida for nearly three decades. He currently lives in Cape Coral with his wife Andrea and is the proud father of three daughters, Julia, Jennifer, and Madison. Gary has served our community through personal participation on non-profit boards and government agencies. During his career, he has been awarded Cape Coral’s Citizen of the Year and Lee County’s Humanitarian of the Year. He considers giving back to the community a core value, a privilege, and an honor.
As a business leader and President of the Aubuchon Team of Companies, Gary’s leadership skills and management competency have distinguished him in the Southwest Florida business community. His experience as an entrepreneur began as a one person, home-based real estate business. Under his leadership, it has developed into the present-day, diversified enterprise that has earned him the local reputation as an industry leader with vision.
The Speaker of the Florida House Dean Cannon appointed Representative Aubuchon to serve as the Chairman of the Rules and Calendar Council. The position of Rules Chairman is one of the most difficult and sensitive positions in the House. According to House Speaker Dean Cannon: “The Rules of the Florida House guide the conduct of House business and protect the integrity of the institution. They are essential to the smooth and fair flow of the process from bill referrals to final floor action. The House Rules Chair must understand how parliamentary procedure interacts with the practical work of the Legislature. He must act as an honest broker to ensure the orderly functioning of the House while respecting the rights of individual members. Representative Gary Aubuchon has demonstrated to me that he possesses these qualities, and I am honored that he has agreed to serve as my Rules Chair.”

Boca Beach Report


The Beaches of Boca Grande are beautiful, clean and pristine.  The surrounding estuaries are teeming with fish and the tarpon have arrived by the thousands.  Our little village is bustling with weddings, fishermen and families enjoying natures bounty.  We are thankful that the loop current in the Gulf of Mexico will take the oil spill in the gulf away from our beautiful beaches,  and at the same time we wish the best for our Gulf neighbors far to our northwest.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration projects that there is less than a one percent chance of oil reaching the beaches of Boca Grande and Southwest Florida.
