Below you will find a list of representatives to contact about our water quality issues. Take a few minutes to share your thoughts with them via phone, email, or snail mail. Not sure what to write? Here are a few ideas:

  • Describe what we are currently experiencing in our area, including what our beaches look like, how the air and water quality are affecting your health and your life, and how the mass kills make you feel.
  • Address the economic impacts of harmful algal blooms. How is this affecting your business, or the businesses of people you know? 
  • Express your dissatisfaction with how water has been mismanaged in Florida. 
  • Share why healthy oceans are important to you. 
  • Ask politicians to work in partnership with organizations and scientists who understand how to improve our water quality. Consider mentioning The Everglades Trust, The Everglades Foundation, Captains for Clean Water, SCCF, and any others you are aware of and trust.
  • As a tax payer, encourage the use of additional tax dollars to move closer to a solution. 
  • Ask for frequent public updates on any progress that has been made. 
  • Remind representatives that if they fail to move forward with solutions to take care of our water, we will vote them out of office. 

A big thank you to The City of Sanibel for sharing much of this contact info via email - they gave us a great list to add to!
