After all the work and all the excitement and all the meetings.
We didn’t get any Amendment One money for our Park on the Homosassa River.
In fact, neither Florida Senator Dean nor Simpson bothered to even step up for us.
And then Senator Dean showed up for our meeting tonight and showed that he had NO IDEA WHAT WE WANTED.
I recorded the interaction, just in case you want to know more details.
Politics in action. If you don’t have a lobbyist (Crystal River is paying one $40,000 a year) you don’t get anything.
Terry and I had another meeting so we left before this one was over. Is it rude to walk out on a Senator? I just don’t know the protocol.
I received these photos in my email….
So we went on to a meeting with Festival organizers. I’m sure we resolved a WHOLE LOT MORE than Senator Dean accomplished!
