Cape Coral Friends of Wildlife Candidate Forum // Tuesday Night at 7:00

Dear Friends,

I am so thrilled to tell you that we have heard from several potential primary-winning candidates (at that point, of course, the Primaries will be over and the actual final running mates will be known) indicating that they will be attending our Candidates Forum. This may be one of the only events where you will hear exactly what the hopefuls are thinking regarding Cape Coral's environment and other timely issues such as the widespread and extremely concerning seawall damage and street flooding.

Mayoral Candidate Joe Coviello actually asked the sponsor of another event on the same evening to alter his conflicting debate start time. The other person agreed! He; along with hopefuls John Gunther, Richard Leon, Jennifer Nelson and James Foraker have confirmed that they will attend.

If you only ever attend one meeting of the Cape Coral Friends of Wildlife, this would be the one. Pressing issues such as conservation of green space and parks and recreational land, discharges from Okeechobee and all water management concerns, contractors/homeowners and the Burrowing Owl, etc. Please come with questions about any topics that you care about. 

In the meantime, I urge you to consult past and current issues of local papers such as The Breeze or News Press
to gain some background knowledge of the candidates and their views. 

The Candidates Forum will be held on Tuesday, October 10, 2017 at the Rotary Park Environmental Center at 7:00 p.m. Address:  5505 Rose Garden Drive, Cape Coral

Please come early, we are anticipating a large audience.
