Candidate Questions 2018

Elections are coming up, so now is the time to research your candidates on the federal, state and local levels. You need to know which candidates support protecting Florida’s waterways. Use these questions to find where your candidates stand:

1) If elected, how will you stop the destructive discharges from Lake Okeechobee to the St. Lucie River Estuary and Indian River Lagoon?

2) If elected, what will you do to stop pollution at its source in our watersheds and will you hold the polluters accountable for their damages?

3) If elected, will you sponsor legislation and work to obtain funding for water-related projects to protect and restore Florida’s estuaries, lagoons and natural waters?

4) Agriculture is very influential in Florida. Do you pledge to be independent of this influence and do what’s best for Florida’s waters?

5) Do you recognize the toxic blue-green algae blooms pose an immediate danger to the public health, safety and welfare and will you take steps to protect us from these dangers?
