Nonprofit staff and tour guides are keeping South Florida national parks clean. (Miami Herald)

Here in St. Augustine, our Nation's Oldest European-founded city, the interiors of the Castillo de San Marcos and Fort Matanzas remain CLOSED by edict of President DONALD JOHN TRUMP.

The Castillo is our largest tourist attraction.

Its being closed damages our tourist economy here in our Nation's Oldest City.

Last year, I asked Governor RICHARD LYNN SCOTT and local government officials about procedures to help keep the Castillo and Fort Matanzas open, including a small amount of state funds, as elsewhere (preferably bed tax funds, paid by tourists).

No response.


This article from the Miami Herald shows what happens when people work together for the common good:
