Update on Florida disaster aid

In EYEONCITRUS.COM on kp12 at 281806
Bill Nelson - U.S. Senator for Florida
In an effort to save Florida’s $9 billion citrus industry and speed-up work on Herbert Hoover Dike, I called on Senate leaders today to include additional disaster assistance for Florida in a government spending bill the Senate is expected to take up this week.

I urged Sens. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Mitch McConnell (R-KY) to provide funding for several important projects aimed at helping Florida recover, including:

  • Funding to help Florida’s citrus growers. Florida’s citrus industry sustained more than $760 million in losses due to the storm. USDA estimates Florida’s citrus industry will harvest 46 million boxes of citrus this year, less than 25 percent of the nearly 204 million boxes harvested in Florida ten years ago.
  • Funding to help Florida schools. More than 12,000 students, who evacuated from Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands in the wake of the storms, have now enrolled in schools around Florida. The sudden influx of new students is putting a strain on some Florida schools as they struggle to accommodate the additional students with the limited budgets and resources they have available.
  • Funding to complete work on the Herbert Hoover Dike. Herbert Hoover Dike protects thousands of Floridians who live around Lake Okeechobee from the threat of catastrophic flooding. The Army Corps of Engineers says it needs approximately $200 million per year, for the next four years, to finish work on the dike by 2022.

PETITION EXAMPLE

After filing papers on Jan. 8 2018 I am building the infrastructure for my campaign! I plan to put the County Commission on the road to sustainable programs that do not include the building of county wide water and sewer systems nor does it include turning Citrus County into the suburbs for Orlando and Tampa! The necessity to attract more industries with higher pay scales is inescapable, without such foresight the dismal reality of those who have and those who have not will continue to grow becoming worst resulting in a smaller tax base, program cuts and higher taxes! Putting the clamps down on the industrial park in Holder was short sighted with no acknowledgement to the potentials that would become available because of it’s proximity to Marion County. I am running for District 2’s seat, it’s a county wide election and this is your opportunity to let all the commissioners know you’re dissatisfied with their current views and you, the voters of Citrus are tired of being ignored! Our first priority is to get on the ballot, in order to do that I need 1057 petitions signed by Citrus County Registered Voters and I need it sooner rather than later!

If you would like to volunteer for change and to distribute my petitions or you need some petitions delivered to you send an email to dg4ccd2@gmail.com

or call 352-503-8294 and leave a message!

Online Campaign Contributions are in the works-COMING SOON!
