The elected officials met just one day before the two year anniversary of this tragic event showing that while the visible signs of this devastation have gone there is still much healing and recovery going on within these communities. Commissioner Alan Brock representing Wakulla County, stated “As local elected officials we've joined together to make sure that our coastal communities have a unified voice. Together we are making a difference, with a stronger voice from all our effected states”.
The meeting was a follow up to a meeting that took place in Washington DC to lobby Congress to pass the RESTORE Act. Elected officials have broken down state and county lines to join together to ensure that their communities and thereby the entire Gulf Coast Region can fully recover and rebuild their economies following the DeepWater Horizon Oil Spill. Also in attendance was Wakulla County Administrator David Edwards, who stated, “After two years, it is time to make this right. On behalf of Wakulla County, we thank Representative Steve Sutherland and Senator Bill Nelson for their support of the RESTORE Act”.
