WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Neal Dunn, M.D. (Florida-02) released a statement following the news of Apalachicola Mayor Kevin Begos’ untimely passing.
“Apalachicola Mayor Kevin Begos was an outstanding leader in his community, as well as in Florida’s Second Congressional District. Kevin led Apalachicola through the aftermath of Hurricane Michael and the COVID-19 pandemic, which was no easy feat. In a time when his community needed him most, Kevin selflessly stepped up to the plate to unite the community and get the town back on track. I’m incredibly grateful for Mayor Begos’ service and contributions. His family and the citizens of Apalachicola are in my prayers.”
