    No, and do not think the health of our water is being planned for. Reverse osmosis should be introduced for safer drinking water, scientific reports of contamination of our drinking water now exist. Contaminatioin should be avoided. Mine has begun tasting of fungicides... if that is correct, it may be killing off the healthy flora in our intestines. Harmful and persistent chemicals reported in our water have no taste but may be more lethal. Voters should support getting the clean water amendment onto the ballot in order for the voters to be able to make our officials follow our desire for clean and healthy waters. Signing the petitions is the only way this will happen, our officials never will go against the efforts to prevent the amendment by those who pay for the political campaigns of those who will do their bidding. The voters must act or it never will be changed.

    Manatee County is planning for little other than lining the pockets of a couple of developers, whom I'm sure will eventually line the pockets of those promoting their endeavors. Interesting this question is asked just as a new Mosaic leak is detected a little north of the County line. As we look to the future, County taxpayers will be footing the bill for clean water for the new development yet to come online. The current Commission plans only for the present... the future be damned!!
