Politicians off course

July 13, 2018
Cape Coral Daily Breeze

To the editor:

Politicians need to wake up and smell the roses. It's a new day and, thanks to President Trump, the people will no longer accept meaningless babble from our elected officials.

Let's get right to it. Gov. Scott looked at the disgusting polluted water in Southwest Florida and declared a "state of emergency." Sounds good, means nothing without a full explanation of what's being done to rectify the situation. Not only do the people need to know what the declaration "state of emergency" means, we should be told exactly what measures are being taken to correct the situation, how quickly they will kick in and precisely what are the dangers to the people with the water in its current state.

The odors are over powering - how will this impact medically on the people's respiratory functions? We need to know if this is a "five-alarm fire" and if we're at risk when breathing in the areas.

And, we need to know this now.

Come on Governor, put on your big boy pants and do your job. Same for Senator Nelson and every elected official involved in Southwest Florida. You've been hired to serve the people, to do your job: Do it, dammit!

Elected officials need to follow President Trump's example and understand that only doing means anything! Talking, pointing fingers, and acting stupid no longer count.

It's time to stop playing and start working. The pollution needs to be identified and corrected without delay.

Yes, it's a new day and we demand to be treated with respect and with serious problem-solving actions.

Nothing less will be acceptable!
