WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Congressman Brian Mast (FL-18) today released the following statement after Governor Ron DeSantis nominated Chauncey Goss to serve on the South Florida Water Management District Board:

“As a member of Captains for Clean Water and the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation, Chauncey Goss has a strong understanding of the issues plaguing Florida’s waterways. Based on my conversations with him, I believe he will be a passionate advocate for reform and help advance the Governor’s bold plan to clean up Florida’s waterways. On top of that, he’s a great pick in the fight to make South Florida Water Management District represent the people, not special interests.”
