Water Issues “On Tap” For Florida Presidential Debates Tonight and Tomorrow Night.
Multiple news sources are reporting on a group of Florida mayors pressing Florida Presidential debate moderators to ask the candidates about their views on pressing Florida water quality, Lake Okeechobee, and climate related issues.
Here’s a quick summary of Reuters take on the Florida Presidential debate and water story.
“Mayors of 21 cities in Florida on Friday called on the moderators of next week’s presidential debates in Miami to ask candidates how they would deal with rising sea levels caused by climate change, a concern of the state’s coastal communities.
“It would be unconscionable for these issues of grave concern for the people of Florida to not be addressed in the upcoming debate you will be hosting in the state,” the mayors wrote in an letter to CNN, The Washington Post, Univision and the other media outlets hosting the Democratic and Republican debates on March 9 and March 10 in Miami.”
