“As a native of Punta Gorda, born here in 1956, and being part of the business community since 1980, I have witnessed countless changes in the city. None so encouraging, however, as the city’s current commitment to economic development and ensuring the success of new businesses seeking to call Punta Gorda home.  This is an exciting time to be in Punta Gorda.”
