NEWS PRESS: Army Corps Col. Andrew Kelly: A successful year for Lake Okeechobee | Opinion

With pressure fromΒ Governor Ron DeSantisΒ and persistent and unapologetic work fromΒ Congressman Brian Mast, the Army Corps did something they’ve never done before: They bucked the political whims of Big Sugar.

The problems that plague our waterways and are killing the Everglades won't be solved with the flip of a switch, but this is what progress looks like. For that, all Floridians should be thankful.
