As the environment becomes increasingly more important across party lines, these two men will protect Florida's Natural Choice, Seminole County.

 

By Jacob Engels

 

For those that call Seminole County home, treasures like Wekiva Springs are as important to the county's fabric as their A-rated schools.

 

Next Tuesday, voters will get to elect two new Soil and Water Supervisors.

 

These individuals will work to protect the environment and make sure Seminole County is preserved for future generations.

 

Our recommendations for Groups 2 and 4 are below.

 

Seminole Soil and Water Group, 2 - David Mahnken

 

Group 2 is an epic battle between a environmental scientist and a well-known political hand.

 

David Mahnken, is the only professionally certified soil scientist in Seminole County, and has more than 25 years of experience as an ecologist.

 

Non-profit and faith leader Tony Tizzio is also taking a shot at elected office.

 

Mr. Tizzio is well-known for his volunteer efforts for local candidates and understands the local political landscape.

 

However, it would be negligent for voters to pass up an opportunity to have an actual scientist on the Seminole Soil and Water board.

 

The Seminole County Post is proud to endorse David Mahnken and hope he sticks to science, not politics if elected.

 

Seminole Soil and Water, Group 4 - Ed Young

 

Two qualified men are vying for Group 4, with first term Supervisor Ed Young seeking another term against newcomer Brian Byrd.

 

Young, one of the few elected officials who stood against disgraced former Tax Collector Ray Valdes, is a local teacher.

 

Byrd is an astute and deadly effective criminal defense attorney.

 

We like Young for this position because of his visibility in the community and aggressive use of digital media to get out the vote.

 

In his role as Treasurer of the board he has managed the funds effectively and helped forge a solid five-year plan for the Soil and Water board.

 

Byrd is definitely the outsider, but Young is far from your quintessential out-of-touch incumbent.

 

While Byrd has the advantage of being a newcomer and having his name at the top of the ticket, Young has the benefit of a strong ground game and network of supporters.

 

The Seminole County Post endorses Ed Young for Seminole Soil and Water, Group 4.
