Save Pensacola Beach is an effort to stop one of the largest public land/beach grabs in Florida’s state modern history. This theft of Public Land sets a nightmare precedent for publicly owned land in our country. Public Land belongs to the public, and we believe Public servants are charged with protecting this land not stealing it from the citizens of Escambia County, Florida as recorded deeds declare in the public record of 1947.
The Escambia County Commissioners, working with Rep. Matt Gaetz and Sen. Marco Rubio, are trying to amend the original 1946 federal law that gave Santa Rosa Island to the citizens of Escambia County with two requirements: it must be used “in the public’s interest” and it could never be sold, conveyed, or disposed of, except back to the federal government.

This has been in the works for a very long time. With local party officials, especially here in Florida looking away or pretending like nothing is wrong, they know they can get away with it. There is no difference in the parties any more. It is only an illusion, to make us think that we actually have a choice, we don't. The pigs all eat at the same trough. Change will not come from the top, it will come from the bottom.
There is hope. The newly formed Democratic Progressive Caucus of Tampa Bay has strong progressive leadership and are committed in taking the party in the right direction. The same can be said about The Tampa Democratic Socialists Of America. The rest are just social clubs, They have their meetings once a month and pretend they are making a differance, they're not. They arestatus quo and are the reason we are here.

After 5 years, $150,000 and 2 exhaustive site selection studies only one site was ever found to be either environmentally acceptable or economically feasible. But now the future of the Schultz Ferry Park is very much in doubt. And as a key component of south Hillsborough transit plans, losing the ferry project jeopardizes the future of public transportation plans. County Commission Chair Stacy White has expressed doubt about public support for the ferry project. He told us that he would like to hear from environmentalists about the Tampa Bay Ferry Project and the proposed Schultz Ferry Park.
Commissioner White's phone number: 813-272-5740 His email: email@example.com
