Florida Senate President Joe Negron (R-Stuart) today released the following statement regarding the passing of Nathaniel Reed.
“My friend and constituent Nathaniel Reed was a resolute force of nature who devoted his life to protecting the environment of Florida and the United States. He was a trusted adviser on conservation issues to many U.S. Presidents and Florida Governors. I will personally never forget his unwavering support for the Senate Bill 10 EAA Southern Reservoir and his lifelong commitment to Everglades restoration. Mr. Reed loved Jupiter Island, Hobe Sound and Martin County. His prominent standing in the modern history of Florida is secure and irreplaceable. The thoughts and prayers of our entire community are with his family during this difficult time.”
