In January, 2013 Lake Point filed a SLAPP suit against me for criticizing their rockpit project in western Martin County. I said it would not save the Everglades, the Loxahatchee River or our estuary. I said that loudly and publicly. 

Freedom of speech is a wonderful thing.  It’s worth fighting for.   Read WHY FIGHT?

  1. With everything we have discovered, my case is more important than ever.
  2. The SFWMD and the County have settled with Lake Point giving away millions of taxpayers' money.  see  SETTLEMENT
  3. The settlement agreements entered into by the District and the County trample on the rights of taxpayers and residents.
  4. The settlement agreements creates concern about Florida Water Law and public ownership of our water resources.
  5. Martin County’s right to control growth and development is at stake. 
  6. Big Sugar appears to be weighing in to support Lake Point. see  POLITICS AND MONEY

The original case was styled Lake Point vs SFWMD, Martin County, and Maggy Hurchalla. After fighting back for almost five years, the District and the County have settled.

I am now the last one standing for the right of citizens to express their opinion about a questionable project. 

The trial is set for Feb 5, 2018. The information that comes out when we go to trial and witnesses are under oath is going to shock a lot of people.

Citizens who care have made Martin County different and better. I’m not quitting until we make it clear that SLAPPing citizens is not a successful strategy in Martin County. If I did get intimidated and give up, I’d have to lose faith in democracy and justice. I want to say that "I fought the fight, finished the race and kept the faith" (2 Timothy 4:7).

Thank you for having my back,

Maggy Reno Hurchalla
