[Extensions of Remarks] [Page E540] From the Congressional Record Online through the Government Publishing Office [www.gpo.gov] HONORING THE LIVES AND SERVICE OF WALTER ``SKIP'' CAMPBELL AND ROY TRACHTENBERG ______ HON. THEODORE E. DEUTCH of florida in the house of representatives Friday, May 3, 2019 Mr. DEUTCH. Madam Speaker, I am honored to rise today in recognition of the lives and service of two outstanding individuals: my constituents, Roy Trachtenberg and Walter ``Skip'' Campbell. Skip Campbell was known as a monumental warrior for justice who made a significant mark on the world. Skip served his community in the Florida Senate from 1996 to 2006, before his election as Mayor of Coral Springs in 2014. His leadership was paramount in ensuring the success and wellbeing of our community. A South Florida native, Roy Trachtenberg served as an administrator in the New York School system, where he devoted 35 years to helping students succeed. He moved back to Florida where he served as the Dean of Education for a community college trade school, where he developed a curriculum to upgrade the skills of workers displaced due to the 9/11 terrorist attack. Through their public service, each honoree has touched countless lives and made a lasting impact on our South Florida community. In recognition of this service, the Coral Spring/Parkland Democratic Club have honored their memories by designating their annual service and leadership awards as the Roy Trachtenberg Service Award and the Skip Campbell Leadership Award. Skip and Roy are truly deserving of this honor. I am glad to see their legacies of service preserved and used as a paradigm for those who follow them. ____________________
