Democratic candidates from Collier County were invited this week to a candidate forum at The Carlisle Naples, a senior living community.
Why am I running for the state Senate?
I told the residents that high on my list of concerns are the environmental catastrophies we are experiencing right now, the toxic algae being released from Lake Okeechobee into our rivers and shoreline, the prolonged Red Tide outbreak, the lack of environmental regulations and enforcement.
In Florida, the environment is the economy. A healthy environment provides us a healthy quality of life. We can do better and we need a change in Tallahassee to do that.
Each candidate was given only a couple of minutes to speak, but you can see my comments in the video below.
