Chairwoman Terrie Rizzo visited the Pinehurst Garden Apartments in Lynn Haven Tuesday a few months after her last visit with DNC Chairman Tom Perez in June.

With her were local Democratic leaders and Hurricane Michael survivors who shared their experiences.

Among the topics of discussion was what she believes is a slow recovery in the area.

Rizzo said, "People not here who are not impacted and directly affected this on a regular basis believe that everything is has been taken care of and life is going on. Well life is going on but for the people here there is very slow, slow recovery."

She said she chose to highlight the Pinehurst Garden Apartments as a symbol of the slow recovery taking place in the area.
