I thought the best way to sum up where I stand on the issues, is to attach links to the different articles that I have written. The articles go back ten years, so I can’t put them all, so I will put some of the more recent articles over the past three years.

I can state that I have been a leader going back ten years, fighting against polluting the Gulf with the outflows along the ICW and Gulf. As a surfer, that has battled two infections after cutting my food and calf in the water, it has been an issue that deeply concerns me. My opponent Bob Daniels has done everything possible not to take action against the pollution, until he started ramping up his campaign for Mayor and then his position drastically changed. Regarding my other opponent Ron Feinsod, well he has no track record, due to limited involvement in local issues.

Sustainable Development

Fiscal Responsibility

This shows I was right about my concern with the water coming out of the outflows. Something Holic, Daniels and Clinch ridiculed me for…… Where is my apology now?
