Help us show Secretary Vinyard and Governor Scott how much the St. Johns River means to its owners.  Let them know that we refuse to stand idly by and allow a short-sighted political decision to jeopardize the health and future of our river. #

Secretary Vinyard cancelled a meeting scheduled with us over three weeks ago. He has since made no attempt to reschedule the meeting, despite the urgency of this issue and significance of our concerns. #

According to the Riverkeeeper’s email, the Department of Environmental Protection’s silence “may be an indication that Secretary Vinyard, Governor Scott, and the DEP staff have simply made up their minds and are getting ready to issue the wastewater discharge permit to GP.” #
