Kudos to the inspiring leadership of Damon Moore, Manatee County's resource manager.
For all those cynics who believe government is bad and wasteful and is just full of lazy slackers, these skeptics missed a wonderful opportunity to see how our tax money is really spent.
At an April 29 Fish and Game meeting, Moore described the progress he and his army of volunteers are making in creating numerous natural preserves that grace our entire county.
Thanks to Moore's efforts, we have greater access to the natural beauty of Manatee County's fauna and flora.
Bravo, Damon Moore.
