Paula Dockery Nails It: Charlie Crist Passes U.S. Sugar Deal Baton to Bill McCollum

Sen. Paula Dockery, R-Lakeland, passionate about her love for the Everglades, Thursday said she was disappointed but not surprised by the South Florida Water Management District Board's unanimous vote to approve a twice down-sized U.S. Sugar deal.

Bad deal for the River of Grass, she said. Bad deal for taxpayers, too.

Asked if theres anything that can be done to get Everglades restoration back on track, Dockery said, Its up to the governor. The governor can make it or break it.

But lets be honest, U.S. Sugar handed $680,000 over to Bill McCollum for his campaign. And thats just the money we know about.

I think, when this deal closes, U.S. Sugar and Bill McCollum will owe 18 million Floridians a gigantic thank you.
