Public Service Award to Mayor Ruane

The 32nd annual conference of the Everglades Coalition chose Sanibel’s Mayor Ruane to receive their James D. Webb public Service Award. His active support for the conservation and restoration of the Everglades has resulted in an elevated role for Florida cities moving forward with new energy and new partners. This is an important issue for the state since both its real estate and tourism are affected by the Greater Everglades water system. That is also the case for Sanibel. It can have significant and harmful impact on the quality of our coastal waters. That’s why David Schuldenfrei became involved and is one of 29 people interviewed for a new documentary film “Legacy,” which explores all aspects of the clean water issue.
