“Jonathan brings an enormous level of creativity and political savvy to FCV,” said Aliki Moncrief, FCV executive director. “We are delighted to have him join the team as we work to make sure the pro-solar Amendment 4 initiative and our endorsed candidates succeed in the August 30 primary.”

Florida Conservation Voters started as a coalition of Florida’s conservation community united towards one goal: passing Amendment 1, the Water and Land Conservation Amendment. Now our goal is to elect the best public officials who will enact sound policies that ensure our cherished, yet vulnerable, natural lands and waters are protected. We will elect, educate, and hold elected officials accountable for their conservation and environmental policy votes. For more information, visit www.fcvoters.org.
