U.S. Rep. Tom Rooney, R-District 17, did not mince words or sidestep questions at the Monday, JuneĀ 10, Tiger Bay of Polk County monthly gathering.

Like all guests who appear before Tiger Bay members and guests, Rooney gave a brief synopsis of his background, which included having served with the U.S. Army after completing law school, and getting his first direct taste of politics as a staff member of then-Sen. Connie Mack III. Rooney also told of his first term in office, when he represented District 16, which at the time went from coast to coast in Florida.
