Palmetto Ford, a family-owned and operated Ford/Autocar/Jerr-Dan truck dealership, recently hosted U.S. Representative Mario Diaz-Balart. The congressman toured the dealership and examined Palmetto Ford’s lineup of trucks and hybrid refuse vehicles, drove an electric Transit Connect and met with employees and the principals.

“Palmetto Ford was honored to host Congressman Diaz-Balart at our dealership,” says Bob Yglesias, president of Palmetto Ford. “It was a wonderful opportunity for us to show the congressman what we do and how we impact the community.”

Palmetto Ford is a second-generation family-owned and -operated Ford/Autocar/Jerr-Dan truck dealership. Serving the South Florida community since 1966, Palmetto Ford services businesses throughout Miami-Dade, Broward and Monroe Counties and exports to countries around the world.

“It’s truly a privilege to visit the real job creators, who put Americans back to work and point our economy in the right direction,” Diaz-Balart said. “To witness a second generation family-owned business gives me a sense of pride and optimism for our American future, but we must allow the private sector to fulfill its role by making sure the federal government stops overtaxing and over-regulating.”
