Re:      City Commission Meeting ~ Tuesday, August 17, 2021

Dear Mayor and City Commissioners:

Last Stand continues to, and would strongly urge the Commission to follow through on the decision made at the July 12th special meeting and pass an Ordinance that replicates the language of the three voter-enacted referendums restricting cruise ships in Key West.

There is striking visual evidence of the improved water clarity after the absence of the cruise ship industry in our ports. This is evident both in the Atlantic and the Gulf waters all the way up the Keys.

The voices and the votes were clear. Now it is in your hands to effect that for the benefit of the people.

For the Last Stand Board,

D.A. Aldridge, President
