St. Johns County TDC Meets at 1:30: Reopening Castillo de San Marcos with bed tax money must be discussed

Last year, I contacted St. Johns County Tourist Development Commission Executive Director Tara Meeks about how to use bed tax money to reopen the Castillo de San Marcos.  

No response.  

TDC meets today at the St. Johns County Administration Building Auditorium a/k/a 'Taj Mahal."  Next meeting is in March?

County administrators deserve to be questioned about why they don't care about the quality of the tourist experience and don't care about the low wages paid our tourism workers.

The spectacle of our National Park Service rangers being unpaid and our world class history being closed deserves attention.

Our NPS park rangers are the best tourism workers in town

We have their backs and our government officials must speak out in their support.


Never again.

As Dr. King said, "Our lives begin to end the moment we stop caring about the things that matter."
