Orlando, Fla. – In case you missed it, during his rally in Southwest Florida last night, President Donald Trump recognized Republican Candidate for Governor Ron DeSantis for his role in passing America’s Water Infrastructure Act of 2018, which included the authorization of the reservoir south of Lake Okeechobee.
“Rick and Ron also worked closely with us to pass legislation to build a reservoir south of Lake Okeechobee – that was an expensive one – to clean Florida’s water. That’s a big one,” said President Trump of DeSantis & Governor Rick Scott.
Clean water has been a top priority for DeSantis who has been endorsed by the Everglades Trust for his strong position on the issue.
“As Governor, I will work with the President and his administration to make sure we get the resources we need to clean our water and our rivers and protect our way of life here in the State of Florida,” said DeSantis.
