Wood has been a vocal advocate for the widespread adoption of electric vehicles and touts their potential to revolutionize the auto industry and provide valuable reductions to harmful carbon emissions.

“Cathie’s innovation and focus on the future make her presence the highlight of this year’s conference. We are honored that she is our keynote,” said former Sen. Jeff Brandes, the FAV Summit founder.

    I hope she is able to flash her DeSantis Club card at Rhonda’s Special State Guard Police when Rhonda sends them, at Elon Musk’s request, to jail her for dumping Tesla and acquiring Teladoc.

    And if she can acutally flash a DeSantis Club Card to Rhonda’s very special police squad, I hope it helps her stay out of jail.

    If I were Ms Wood, I wouldn’t set foot in Ron y Lon’s Florida when yLon has a price on her head and Ron is in charge of a state with a whole lot of water (and alligators) and we all know what kind of Natalie doesn’t float.
