SEMINOLE - Congressman David Jolly, who represents Pinellas County’s District 13, was the guest speaker at the Seminole Chamber of Commerce’s Aug. 21 Business Power Luncheon at the St. Petersburg College - Seminole library conference center.

Jolly answered questions from attendees and touched upon a number of topics, including events that recently made national and global headlines - the beheading of U.S. journalist James Foley by ISIS, and the fatal shooting of an unarmed black teenager by police in Ferguson, Missouri.

“Regardless of our thoughts, somebody lost their life and another person is dealing with the fact that that life was lost at their own hands,” Jolly said when asked about the Ferguson shooting.
