Surfrider brings Kelly Slater and Gov. Crist together

FL GOVERNOR PRESENTS KELLY SLATER WITH CRUCIAL BEACH PROTECTION BILL

Landmark Legislation Was Secured By The Surfrider Foundation

Cocoa Beach, FL (November 13, 2007) – On Tuesday, Florida Governor Charlie Crist presented a signed copy of Senate Bill 1472 to eight-time world surfing champion Kelly Slater. The presentation took place at an event celebrating Slater’s appointment to the Governor’s Council for Physical Fitness.

“Here in Florida, Surfrider Foundation has been extending itself beyond the surf community,” said Kelly Slater. “They’re not only looking out for the concerns of surfers but everyone that enjoys the ocean.”

GO VOTE in the Nov. 20th Run-Off

Personal message here from TJ. As folks know, I'm pretty passionate about politics and beach projects. Here in Miami Beach there is currently a very BIG breakwater and sand pumping project going on as well as a run-off election to decide the City's next Mayor and Commission.

I’ve come to find that Commission candidate Deede Weithorn understands the folly of the current breakwater and sand pumping project while the other candidate does not. She's earned my vote and I hope you'll consider giving her yours to. Early voting for the run-off starts this coming weekend 9am-7pm at Miami Beach City Hall. You can also call Deede's campaign (305-725-5706) and they'll shack you up with an absentee ballot if you can't make it to the polls on Nov. 20th.

Run-off elections are very low-low turnout so our community has a chance to put someone in office who'll listen when we've got something to say.  That's worth taking the time to GO VOTE!
