In secret, behind locked gates, our Nation's Oldest City dumped a landfill in a lake (Old City Reservoir), while emitting sewage in our rivers and salt marsh. Organized citizens exposed and defeated pollution, racism and cronyism. We elected a new Mayor. We're transforming our City. This is advanced citizenship. Ask questions. Make disclosures. Demand answers. Expect democracy. Celebrate our 450th birthday. Smile! Help enact a St. Augustine National Park and Seashore. We shall overcome! Enjoy!
