    If this guy is doing all this volunteer work,,when is he ever going to find time to to do the job he's getting paid????

    Isn't community integration really part of his job? I'm guessing Mr. Browne chose the term "volunteer" to indicate he is not getting paid to be on these boards, but rather providing service and representation to Hendry County.

    Excellent point to the second comment! He's not out there painting houses or feeding the homeless in these commitments (although everyone should do more of that). Looks to me that these commitments with the organizations that provide jobs, job training, or ensure the county's attractiveness to people looking at our area. Keep up the good work, Mr. Harrison!
