Curt Clawson

Curt Clawson is the Congressman from this part of Southwest Florida.  His most important legislative focus has been on water issues, which are very important to Gulf of Mexico communities
and a state with Lake Okeechobee and the Everglades.

Clawson played basketball at Purdue, and his TV commercials always show him shooting baskets.
He is often at "my" Starbucks, looking like he just stepped off the court.
Which he might have.
Here he wore a Florida Gulf Coast University shirt.

Water issues are very important to everyone. In Ireland there are some communities that have issues and have to boil their water until further notice :(

Oh, Jack, you're daring posting a quasi-political post! Good to see the congressman is wearing a local school shirt. As for water issues, I'm not familiar with his stances. But, it seems the ACE has done a real number on the Caloosahatchee River in the name of the Everglades, which probably all goes back to the influence and deep pockets of Big Sugar. But, what do I know? : )

One usually doesn't see politicians looking like this.

I heard that the sea water is permeating the water floor in Florida. If that is the case you would need very committed people in deed to stop it. Good luck. Florida is beautiful. Take care of it.
