Carlos Giménez: ‘Jimmy Buffett Shall Always Be an Icon in Our Beloved Florida Keys

Over the weekend, U.S. Rep. Carlos Giménez , R-Fla., weighed in on the passing of Key West legend Jimmy Buffett.

“Jimmy Buffett shall always be an icon in our beloved Florida Keys,” said Giménez. “His music, vision, and entrepreneurship have produced a lasting legacy in our community. Jimmy Buffett introduced the world to the Florida Keys lifestyle in so many ways and as the proud Representative of the Florida Keys in the United States Congress, I look forward to memorializing this true legend of our community. On behalf of the residents of Florida’s 28th Congressional District, rest in peace, Jimmy Buffett.”

Giménez represents Miami-Dade County and the Florida Keys in the U.S. House. He previously served as mayor of Miami-Dade County and is currently the only Cuban-born member of Congress.
