To the editor:
Among my biggest concerns is the damaging releases from Lake O and the subsequent damage to our regions water quality and economy.
Lizbeth Benacquisto has proven that she will fight for the SW Florida environment. Lizbeth headed the effort for additional funding for Caloosahatchee storage and basin projects. In the Florida Senate she has supported pro-business initiatives, sponsored the Andrew Widman Act to better track criminals and sponsored the bill to prevent youths from buying e-cigarettes.
When I had a concern last year when the Car Stereo Noise law was overturned and it was affecting my sleep from thumping bass at 3 a.m., I called Lizbeth's office and I was impressed that I heard back and was able to discuss what can be done.
We deserve a dynamic leader like Lizbeth Benacquisto who can work across the aisle and fight for us on all the challenges we face.
