Listening to the St. Johns County Commission and St. Augustine Beach City Commission when they (rarely) deign discuss these issues, one wonders why: is it because they are dull, dupery Republicans, unsophisticated, and ruled by developer$ and their campaign ca$h?
While the City of St. Augustine made great strides under Mayor Nancy Shaver, her stroke and resignation left the City without a leader on these issues.
The City's low credibility on environmental issues has been further damaged by:
- bogus purchase of 91-93 Coquina Avenue property on. false grounds of flood control set back our credibility,
- Public Works Director Michael Cullum, P.E inviting me to "step outside" at the all-white January 31, 2019 "Keeping History Above Water" meeting, and t
- exclusion of locals and denial of press pass/scholarship for City-sponsored "Keeping History Above Water" event at Flagler College, subject of investigations by federal agents.
