Summer Breeze:Spotlight on Clean Up City of St. Augustine, Florida

Spotlight on Clean Up City of St. Augustine, Florida

Clean Up City of St. Augustine is a blog by resident Ed Slavin

If you’re a frequent reader of St. Augustine news in print or online, you may have run across, or be familiar with, a blog called Clean Up City of St. Augustine, Florida. It’s a no-nonsense, bare bones website written by St. Augustine resident Ed Slavin. The blog is dedicated to community activism in the area. Slavin’s been at it (as well as a few other blogs) since 2006 and shows no signs of slowing down.

Slavin, a former lawyer, is a controversial figure in the St. Augustine blog world, as he demands answers for pressing issues that public figures avoid answering (among a slew of other things). The blogger also criticizes questionable platforms put forth by public figures and other bloggers that support them… and endures criticism himself. In one case, Slavin was even arrested for making numerous (perhaps too many?) public records requests… to the sheriff. Civil disobedience?

Slavin’s latest literary kick is over St. Augustine’s 450th anniversary commission. There are also several links to key topics, such as city preservation and the importance of national parks.
