In advance of the Florida Legislature’s 2023 general session, the Volusia County state delegation convened Jan. 9 at DeLand City Hall to listen to constituents’ requests, comments and ideas.

The districts of six state lawmakers — two senators and four representatives, all Republicans — cover all or parts of Volusia County. Four were on hand for the delegation meeting in DeLand: Sens. Travis Hutson and Tom Wright, and Reps. Webster Barnaby and Chase Tramont. Barnaby is chair of the delegation this year. Reps. Tom Leek and Stan McClain were absent from the meeting.
