Toxic Algae: Call your legislators and sign our petition please!

There is green algae everywhere. Plenty of news media and citizens are speaking out. Why are  we not  hearing is from the legislators. They seem to be missing in action.

Where are they?

This week Gayle Harrell went to Bathtub Beach and out to eat Lionfish. Mary Lynn Magar can’t be bothered to post anything on her Facebook page. Most photos are her trips to foreign lands and fancy ski resorts. Joe Negron has an old photo of himself with the River Kidz and he too went to Bathtub Beach but there is no photos of the Toxic Algae there.

I do not know how much more the citizens can do. We have all worked hard to educate and call everyone to action. We call to action and they all ignore us:  SFWMD Rick Scott Mary Lynn Magar Gayle Harrell Joe Negron

Where are the leaders? The BOCCs? Gayle Harrell? Magar? Negron? They are no where to be found. Every single solitary elected official should be on the news talking about what they are going to fix this? We got the money to buy the land. We have been ignored and vilified. This year is a plan slap in the face.

If they can’t fix this problem they should step down! I have no earthly idea what they care about but its certainly not us.

Have we have enough yet?

Please contact your legislators and tell them to make this stop! Don’t be snowed by their BS. If you have time please let us know what they said to you. If they are not there you make they get back to you. This was unavoidable and unnecessary.
