Oh Jesus. Like he gives a shit after choking funding for restoration and firing the senior science staff at SFWMD and putting in a polluting stooge to run it.
 
Bob,

Agree... Here's more info on the Douglas/Everglades Day via WFSU...

Dawn Shirreffs is the Everglades Restoration Manager for the National Park Conservation Association. She says environmental groups do not want a repeat of last year when the Everglades and other conservation projects did not get the necessary funds:

“It was costly in terms of the budget cuts that we faced for Everglades restoration and catastrophic on some of our growth management policies, which would really impact America’s Everglades. So, we wanted to establish a way to annually make sure that we are constantly educating our state lawmakers on how critical this ecosystem is to our way of life in Florida.”
 
What they need to do is support the recall amendment so we can deep six the guy.
