Good is the conservation leader we need in Tallahassee.
Today Florida Conservation Voters (FCV) announced their endorsement of Representative Margaret Good (D) for State House District 72 (Sarasota).
During her time in the legislature, Rep. Good has shown that she is a committed conservation leader who will fight to protect our waters and natural areas. The water quality crisis now plaguing Sarasota’s coasts isn’t only devastating wildlife, it is destroying the coastal economy and quality of life for Sarasota’s residents. It is a crisis that has been in the making for years, and Rep. Good is the best person to ensure that the legislature enacts common-sense protections to protect our water quality and environment.
“Representative Margaret Good is a smart and dedicated advocate for Sarasota’s residents and Florida’s waterways, beaches, and conservation lands,” said Aliki Moncrief, Executive Director of FCV. “With her impressive legal experience and public policy background, I have no doubt she’ll be a force to be reckoned with in Tallahassee. Her leadership will be needed as we work to restore our state’s water quality protections, ban fracking and offshore drilling, increase funding for parks and land conservation, and advance smart policies to address the damaging effects of climate change on our state.”
FCV’s mission is to elect leaders who represent the conservation values of everyday Floridians. Millions of people have demanded greater protections for irreplaceable treasures like our springs, more funding for parks, and clean energy policies that benefit Florida families, and not special interests.
“We are paying the price for years of ignoring science, and years of failing to protect our water, air, and land,” Good said. “Protecting our natural resources is one of my biggest legislative priorities. That’s why I’m honored to have the support of the Florida Conservation Voters.”
