The Board of Directors of Standing Watch supports the recently announced position of Lieutenant Governor Frank Brogan with respect to aquatic resource regulatory issues, and safeguarding public access to the waters of the State of Florida. Lt. Governor Brogan echoed Governor Bush’s remarks made to our Board members in Miami just a week and a half ago.

"Specifically, we commend Lt. Governor Brogan's statement support the City of Cape Coral, as their local officials work toward solutions to regain permitting authority over docks in their jurisdiction. These inititatives have negatively affected the regional economy, and have compromised private property rights."

We are encouraged that the Governor and Lt. Governor have officially addressed our issues, and we look forward to working with them following the election on November 5th. The Board of Directors of Standing Watch has voted unanimously to endorse the ticket of Bush / Brogan in the interests of sound resource management, and public access to Florida waters.

Check this afternoon for a message from Governor Bush.
