HUNDREDS PROTEST ADAM PUTNAM AT ELLIOT MUSEUM DINNER

HUNDREDS PROTEST ADAM PUTNAM AT ELLIOT MUSEUM DINNER

As the staff stood around with glasses of champagne awaiting the arrival of Adam Putnam hundreds of protesters lined the street.

Adam Putnam was the Keynote speaker to the Martin County 31th Annual leadership dinner and awards at the Elliott Museum.  On the event page for the protest they were invited to show him how the discharges are effecting businesses and families. They were invited to bring their boat, fishing rods,  signs,  family and  friends.

This group wants him to clearly understand that  our waters are the most important economic engine we have in our area.

Without clean water we have nothing.

Apparently he has no idea what is going on here. He did go over and talk to the crowd but he talked about water farming. He said that Rick Scott told to ACOE to send the water south. Funny. The damage is done to both sides of Florida. The water should have been managed months ago. Both have no idea what they are talking about. The leadership of the State of Florida has destroyed us.

According to Driftwood Hotel owner, Irene Nethery Gomes “The big message was the same as its always been. “BUY THE LAND SEND IT SOUTH”- “STOP THE FLOW!” – “AMENDMENT 1.”

Everyone there complimented the local Police and how great they were. (They always are. They live here too and I know are very grateful for the efforts)

According to a friend of mine when the news crew interviewed the sheriff and asked his take on the situation, he said he was glad to see us but wished there were more people protesting. He also lives here and I know they understand that this is a bipartisan issue.

According to some Putnam talked about water farming. It’s a bit confusing to me that he would show up here and not understand the devastation that goes on.

I’m sure the Economic Council loves him since they are been friends with Big Sugar and the Pacific Legal Foundation. Only these people would drink champagne  while our economy and waterways are going down the drain.
