“Florida is home to some of our country’s most imperiled ecosystems and endangered species. We need to elect politicians who won’t sell them out to special interests,” said Sarah Gledhill, Florida field campaigner for the Center Action Fund. “The candidates we are endorsing will stand up for our air, water, land and wildlife both in their backyards and around the country.”

The Center Action Fund is a national nonprofit organization that advocates for legislation and legislators that will advance a progressive environmental agenda. The Center Action Fund is the 501(c)(4) affiliate of the Center for Biological Diversity, but these organizations’ names are not interchangeable. This news release is from the Center Action Fund, not the Center for Biological Diversity.

Merrillee is one of 3 State Representatives to receive this distinguished recognition in the state of Florida and it was based all on her accomplishments in Florida to preserve and protect our environment.  And keeping true to her word, Merrillee did not receive nor accept any financial contributions from this PAC.
