The 2014 Plumbing-Heating-Cooling Contractors — National Association’s Legislative Conference was my first out-of-state conference and now I have come full circle. This year’s conference was just as memorable as last year’s. The 2015 conference began with a welcome to Washington address from Kevin Tindall, PHCC president. It was then turned over to keynote speaker Stephen Hayes, FOX News contributor and senior writer for “The Weekly Standard.”
Hayes talked about President Obama’s administration, the dissatisfaction with government, the upcoming presidential race — of which he favors Marco Rubio as the Republican contender — and the role of millennials in the future of politics. “Rubio is a contender for the race because he is the best communicator in American politics, has a likeability to him and a cross-generational appeal,” he explained.
