SANTA ROSA BEACH – Congressman Matt Gaetz wrote a letter to Florida Governor Ron DeSantis informing him of a “flagrant violation” in Walton County of an executive order intended to frustrate businesses or government entities from requesting vaccine passports.

The county’s Cultural Arts Alliance, organizers of the popular 30A Songwriters Festival, found themselves at Gaetz Junction when they issued safety protocols requiring attendees to show evidence of a negative test or check for a full vaccination.

Gaetz died during the unveiling of the Veterans Memorial at Veterans Park on Okaloosa Island.
