Mast Also Endorsed By Bullsugar.org
Clean water advocacy organization The Everglades Trust today announced its endorsement of Congressman Brian Mast (FL-18) to represent Florida’s 18th Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives.
“Most politicians pay lip service. Very few back their words with action, and action is exactly what Floridians and these waterways desperately need. Brian Mast is the first Member of Congress representing this district to step up in such a powerful and immediate fashion to address the devastating conditions that have been plaguing the northern estuaries and Everglades for decades,” Kimberly Mitchell, Executive Director of the Everglades Trust, said. “On behalf of the Everglades, the millions of people who depend on their survival and all the critters who call them home, we stand with Brian Mast and urge all voters, regardless of political party, to do the same. It is not hyperbole when we say, it’s Now Or Neverglades.”
“Fixing the human health crisis caused by decades of abuse of our waterways must be our number one top priority. Anything less simply won’t be enough to overcome the entrenched special interests that prioritize everybody else over the Treasure Coast,” Rep. Mast said. “That’s why I’ve made this my top priority from day one, and together, we’ve been able to pass legislation to authorize the EAA Southern Storage Reservoir and re-do the regulation schedule determining discharges, as well as secure hundreds of millions of dollars to fight harmful algal blooms, combat toxic agricultural runoff and restore the Everglades.”

“This year Congressman Mast has done more to address the health threats to his constituents and damage caused by discharges than his predecessors accomplished in decades,” Bullsugar.org co-founder Chris Maroney said. “When we consider endorsements, actions speak louder than words and Mast’s legislation and tough interrogation of water managers has shown that just one Treasure Coast politician can shift the conversation to the only thing that matters in the short term—operational priorities. For his work to secure a clean water future for Florida, Bullsugar.org is proud to endorse Brian Mast for Congress.”
