Shawn Williams Endorsed for Florida State House District 78 By the Democratic Environmental Caucus of Florida
Lee County Chapter of the Democratic Environmental Caucus is endorsing Shawn Williams as the preferred candidate running for Florida State House District 78. This district is entirely within Lee County, Florida. This area is hit hard by the Republican State legislature’s assault on local environmental legislation and Shawn Williams is dedicating to countering that.
Williams says, “Our land, our water, and our beaches are our state's greatest treasures and greatest economic assets. Our current ‘representatives’ do not understand this basic economic truth, and their disregard for Florida's natural resources is a reckless threat to our economy.”
Williams supports the DECF position that there is a direct connection between environmental health and human health. DECF President, Dr. Janelle Christensen says, “For 8 years, this seat was run by someone who believed who constantly voted to override local attempts to protect their environment: voted against local plastic regulations and regulating chemicals in sunscreens that hurt coral reefs. It didn’t matter how many of her constituents she hurt. Shawn Williams can undo that damage.”
