I was reading that Burgeron is off the FWC commission. Wonder if that will be good or bad for the Glades and GladesMen ? :fishing :stirpot: :dontknow:

There's been rumors of him running for governor. Resigning his seat would be a first step.

If Ron Bergeron is in the race for governor, it will be just like the last presidential election. It’s not about who I’m voting for, its about who Im NOT VOTING FOR!

Gary Nicholas (son of Jack, and professional golfer), is slated as 1 of the folks replacing him. I believe their are a couple of seats being vacated.

I believe that I have heard that Mr burgeron has a felony conviction on his criminal record
That is why he was a game commissioner and not a game warden
I don't think you can be a governor with that status on your record
I could be wrong though

All depends on what kind of felony .............. certain felonies can be expunged from one's record as others can not.....

When you get that much money it becomes a power thing.


Funny none of the real blue collar hunters and fishermen get selected it is always some millionaire, aspiring politician or corporate head.

They should have a random and unbiased draw off of the hunting and fishing licenses and remove this political bullshit. Put real working people into these slots.

Talking about running for Governor and Adam Putnam. He is the Commissioner of Agriculture. He is allowing Big Sugar to completely destroy our water ways with contaminated run off. Lake Okeechobee is being polluted and so is the St. Lucie river. Last year there was a green slimy substance that was everywhere in Stuart and Ft. Myers.
I do not think he will be the best choice for the future of our children to enjoy this beautiful state , which I love.

Thanks for your input ladyblackwater but I have lived in South and Mid Florida my whole life. (69yrs.) I have seen with my own eyes the destruction Big sugar, Golf courses and leaking septic tanks have done to our once beautiful waterways. And our present Fl. legislation is allowing it to happen with impunity. A few years ago THIS legislature tried to change the laws on the high water mark boundaries. Thankfully Fl. sportsmen stood up to them and the law did not pass. Hope you and your family have a very Merry Christmas.

Sugarcane producers control the politicians decisions pertaining to water use and pollution (Excessive use of fertilizer and pesticides) in South Florida.

AND ............ As Blackwater pointed out everyone wants a lush green yard as well.........

If A/C had never been invented Florida would still be a pristine place to live.....................not so much oil would be leaking from the boats ....lol :stirpot:

You got enough money you can get things done. Just spread it around where it needs to be and your good to go. Money corrupts. Never heard of a 100% honest politician.
