TIME IS NOW - Put a Surfer in da House!

Just wanted to drop a line about a solid ocean conservationist, Tony Sasso, who is in the final push to win a seat in the FL House of Representatives. Y’ all know politics is a rough business; politicians take a beating for not being everything that we want them to be…

Do me a favor though and look past that – think about our oceans and let your friends in the Cocoa Beach, Cape Canaveral, Merritt Island, north Brevard and eastern Orange County areas know about Tony. The TIME IS NOW to get the word out via, email, websites, blogs, and just plain word of mouth --- be true to Big Blue by giving Tony a hand.

Tony is a viable candidate with a TON of high profile endorsements, he also got more votes in the primary than his opponent in the opposite party; the challenge before him is to turn people out to vote during this off-cycle special election. Early voting opened today and runs through Feb. 23rd. The election itself is Feb. 26th. I’ve listed early voting sites below; they’re hyperlinked to Google Maps link so your friends can find the locations easy enough.

As y’all know I’m pretty passionate about ocean preservation and I hope you’ll do me a favor and take action on this. Do it as a fav, do it for Mother Ocean – JUST DO IT!

Nothing like an in-your-face prop to let folks know we're not happy with the bad water quality causing beach closures or casino ships dumping poo in our ocean.



In ONE MINUTE you can fight corruption locking us out of our beaches

and get a stoke all day for doing it!

Only 600 people in Bal Harbour voted in the last election.

We've almost matched that with petition signatures!

We’re filing an ethics complaint against Bal Harbour Village Manager Alfred Treppeda. We’ve started a petition to raise awareness, it has all details of his unethical behavior!

A big round of applause goes out to everyone, from Wyatt and T.C., who were there from the beginning, to the newly elected executive committee and on down to everyone who's come out to participate in Surfrider events, beach projects and, of course, our latest-and-greatest: the beach access protest.
