Below is a transcript of Rubio’s video message:
“Today, my office and I are proud to celebrate our 500th Mobile Office Hours event, with an identity theft and scam prevention seminar that’s being held in Winter Park, Florida.
“Since my election in 2010, my biggest priority has been making sure that my staff and I are available to help constituents with whatever federal assistance they may need.
“Case after case, we have been reminded of how the federal government impacts – and sometimes stands in the way of – people’s ability to achieve the American Dream.
“Whether it’s the case of a constituent whose tax refund is delayed, or by helping one of our veterans who is having a problem receiving their benefits. Or a matter of expediting a visa or a passport, or by putting together seminars that aim to protect Floridians from scams or identity theft – my office and I always stand ready and willing to help.
“More than halfway through my Senate term, I am most proud of knowing that we have made a real difference in the lives of real people. Our service to our constituents has come to be the single, most rewarding part of my job.
“Today, as we mark this occasion of our 500th Mobile Office Hours event, my office and I renew our commitment to serve the people of Florida to the very best of our abilities.”
