State Representative Holly Raschein has taken some heat for her position about how best to deliver fresh water to the Florida Bay. She has been unwilling to sign the Now or Neverglades Pledge and has been quoted in local papers as wanting to finish projects that have been started before moving forward.
She recently reached out to Florida Bay Forever to explain her position. It's a great read:
Would we like to see Holly sign the NoworNeverglades Pledge? Yes. But we read this letter as a version of that pledge that promises a commitment to work hard to move toward everyone's end goal - to find a long term solution to store water south of Lake Okeechobee and bring more fresh water to the Florida Bay.
