On July 3, 2018, the day before Independence Day, ROGERS TOWERS partner ELLEN AVERY-SMITH, on behalf of Texas billionaire DONALD R. HORTON and St. Augustine landowner PIERRE THOMPSON, presented false testimony that bald eagle nest number SJ019 on Fish Island is "abandoned."

In fact, during the 2017-2018 season, the "abandoned" bald eagle nest was shown to be an active bald eagle nest, with a nesting pair and babies.

At the July 3, 2018 St. Augustine Planning and Zoning Board meeting, D.R. HORTON presented materially false and misleading testimony that the bald eagle nest was "abandoned."
I have filed a 10b-5 complaint with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) re: securities fraud over the perjured testimony of Ryan Carter on D.R. HORTON's behalf.
Come speak out at the August 7, 2018 St. Augustine City Commission meeting.
Here's the breakdown on more than $660,000 in environmental and safety fines against D.R. HORTON since 2000:
