TALLAHASSEE, Fla. /Florida Newswire/ -– I commend Interior Secretary Ken Salazar for recognizing Shannon’s experience, expertise and commitment to restoring the famed River of Grass. While we regret she will no longer serve on the Governing Board of the South Florida Water Management District, we are confident that in her new capacity, she will help advance the federal-state restoration efforts so critical to preserving the Everglades ecosystem and the wildlife that call it home.
