I met Marty clearing trees from all the hurricanes that hit Gainesville. He always has 4 or 5 projects at a time that involves serving someone. Marty is rebuilding a trailer and motorcycle for someone in need now. He was once a professional boxer, fighting the likes of Ali, Frazier, Cobb, and more. Trust me. he is tough on the outside, and a teddy bear on the inside. He will even be upset for the nomination.
