We have very little time and we need everyone to take a moment and call their legislators about buying the land. If this is not done by May 1 that’s it. Expect discharges forever!
If you have not signed the petition please sign now. This petition will be presented at Everglades Day in Tally next Monday. We need lots and lots of signatures. Speak now and know you have done everything possible to make the land buy happen.
For our area in the Treasure Coast call (Phone calls are imperative)
Senator Joe Negron
Representative Gayle Harrell
850 717 5082
After you’ve done this send an email over to the Everglades Trust and let them know so no one can these calls were never made. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Here are the big ticket items. Please speak from your heart and tell them your personal story.
“Please Act now to protect and save Florida’s drinking water ! Last November, 75% of Floridians voted for Amendment 1 to set aside funds to clean and protect the Everglades and our drinking water.
We need to hold the sugar industry to their binding and written contract to sell 46,000 acres of sugar land to the state for Construction of the Everglades Agricultural Area Reservoir. The project will help control pollution and save the Everglades.
I urge you to take action, follow the will of the voters and prioritize Everglades Restoration and fund the purchase of this critical land. ”
For those going on Monday to Everglades Day make sure you try to get an appointment with your Legislators while you are there.
For those out of our area we need you to call your representatives. One of the big issues is that other legislators from all over the state have no earthly idea what we are talking about. You need to let them know. This issue affects not just us in Treasure Coast. It affects the entire Everglades ecosystem, the Florida Bay and the drinking water of South Florida.
Please help us stop this!
