PROCEEDINGS AND DEBATES OF THE 115TH CONGRESS, SECOND SESSION UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
RECOGNIZING MR. PAUL NOVACK
The Honorable Ileana Ros-Lehtinen of Florida
August 7, 2018
I am humbled to honor an extraordinary citizen of our South Florida community,
Hailing from Miami-Dade County, Paul has served as a tireless advocate and public servant for those who call our slice of paradise their home.
A proud graduate of my alma mater, the University of Miami (Go Canes!), Paul served as student body President among many other leadership roles. Following his undergraduate degree, Paul enrolled in Nova Southeastern University, where he earned his Juris Doctorate.
Upon completion of his law degree, Paul began his journey to what became an extraordinary legal career, representing thousands of clients and litigating numerous cases across multiple legal subjects. In 2016, Paul was honored by the Dade County Bar Association for significant contributions in providing access to justice; an honor that is well deserved.
In addition, Paul answered the Town of Surfside’s call to service, serving one term as Town Commissioner and subsequently six terms as Mayor. During his tenure as Mayor, Paul worked to author and reform township ethics rules, and led the town to 12 consecutive balanced budgets.
However, Paul’s commitment to public service didn’t stop there. In addition to his roles in public office, he has also held officer postings in our armed forces auxiliary; a Flotilla Staff Officer in the Coast Guard Auxiliary and a Captain in the Civil Air Patrol.
Mr. Speaker, I am honored to recognize Paul’s countless hours of service and dedication to our community. I thank him for his years of dedicated service, and wish him the very best in the years to come.
Gracias (thank you) Paul
