I am deeply honored to receive Amazing Grace Award. To be recognized by FCREC members is very special to me. It is really humbling to receive the award in the presence of so many politicians and leaders of Flagler County. I would like to recognize one person in particular who has been an enduring inspiration to me in the fight for justice and fairness, Jearlyn Dennie. Thank you for all you do, and have done, for the community.
I would like to thank my Kids, grandchildren and husband Jack Barbosa, for his support and love. Your support and friendship mean more to me than I can ever express in words.
So this award is not about me, but it’s about each of you who gave me a word of empowerment, support or being there when I need a friend through my campaign years. Thank you for all your love and kindness. By “Dra. Maria Barbosa”
