Don’t let Mosaic expand phosphate mining in Manatee County | Letter to the editor

I read Sandra Ripberger’s commentary on Mosaic’s generous donations to Manatee County and have listened to their radio ads. Call their actions what you will, but combined they sound like a quid pro quo.

While the decimation of Amazon’s rain forest has been making headlines, I ask Manatee County officials to stop the destruction of Florida’s landscape and waterways by not issuing mining permits to Mosaic.
