Vote for the River

The elections are right around the corner, and it is important that we elect candidates who support efforts to protect and restore the St. Johns River.  More importantly, we need leaders who will make the river a priority, leading the the charge to address and resolve the problems that impact the health of the St. Johns.

As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, St. Johns RIVERKEEPER does not endorse candidates.   However, we have asked candidates to complete a survey to determine their opinions and positions regarding some of the most critical issues facing the St. Johns River and its tributaries.   Unfortunately, few of the candidates surveyed have decided to participate.

Below is a current list of the responses we have received from the candidates, so far.   We will update this page, as we receive more responses.
