Statement from Floridians for Solar Choice on Florida Professional Firefighters’ Withdrawal of Support for Amendment 1

 

Fort Lauderdale, Fla. – This evening Florida Professional Firefighters issued this statement withdrawing their endorsement of Amendment #1.

 

Dr. Stephen Smith, board member of Floridians for Solar Choice, issued this statement:

“We welcome this action as we have known all along that it was shameful for the state’s utilities to draw firefighters into their scam to advance Amendment 1. Firefighters across the state have told us they are Voting No On 1, which is all the more reason for every citizen of Florida to do the same.”

“We request that TV stations across the state honor the request of the firefighters and move quickly to pull the misleading ad, as now it is even more blatantly false advertising, and contributes to deceiving voters across Florida.”
