An Interview With the Mayor

We sat down with Mayor Peter Simmons in Riverside Park to talk about what makes Bonita Springs such a great place for veterans, and why this small town makes such an effort to thank their veterans.

Later, the mayor was kind enough to take us out on a boat ride through Bonita’s many channels and bays. It was great to get the perspective of the town from the water while Mayor Simmons shared with us what he loves most about this ocean side town.

We also filmed a quick interview with Lieutenant Brian Przespolewski from the Lee County Sheriff’s Department about why Veterans Day is so important to Bonita Springs.

A big thank you to the Trianon Hotel at Bonita Bay for hosting us for our week of filming. Your accommodations were wonderful. And as always, we are grateful to our Executive Producer Bob Gillette for helping to organize this production in Bonita Springs.
