Uber is a life saver. I mean literally, a life saver. I've been a partner since December of 2014 and if it was not for this opportunity, I'm not sure if my kids would have had any presents this year. It was uber that enables me to not only work my own schedule, but also provide me with a way to make money to help my family. Uber has helped all sort of people. I can not tell you how many lives I've saved by being an uber partner. I not only save the drunk driver, that probably would have been behind a wheel, but also other drivers that are on their way to their families. Uber is providing a service that is useful to the communities and to society at large. I'm not sure what I would do if Uber is no longer around. It would be devastating to the partner, to the residents and to the tourist that have become accustomed to this kind of service. It is my hope that you will take the necessary step to keep uber in Florida and all the states. Thank you.
