Torrens Plans to Hold Polluters Accountable for Role in Algae Blooms, Lays Out Plan for Environmenta

Stuart, Fla-Ryan Torrens, Democratic Candidate for Florida Attorney General remarked Sunday morning at his astonishment after witnessing a lagoon full of toxic slime on Saturday afternoon.

"Yesterday, I went down to Stuart, FL with my friend Matt Thoebald, who is running for FL House District 83. He wanted to make sure that I saw firsthand the impact that Big Sugar and pollution are having on our state. I couldn’t believe what we found. Toxic algae across the entire lagoon! We have heard R. David Walker talk about this and it was a big issue between Gwen Graham, Chris King, Andrew Gillum, Phillip Levine, & Jeff Greene in the debate the other day, but it’s horrible in person."

When elected Attorney General, Torrens says that he intends to take steps to start enforcing environmental laws and get the state back to protecting our waters, which are our state's biggest asset:

* Establish environmental enforcement division within the AG's office

*Dedicate staff specifically to this division to handle caseload

*Enforce environmental laws fairly, without giving special exemptions to polluters

Thank you for visiting our page! I am a consumer protection attorney who defends Florida homeowners in foreclosure and sues big banks, debt collectors, and other big corporations for ripping people off.

On June 1, 2017, I announced my candidacy for Florida Attorney General. Believing that how much justice you get should not depend on how much money you have, I ran on a platform of fighting for everyday Floridians and standing up to big corporate interests. During our 15 month campaign, I followed through on our pledge to refuse even one penny in big corporate campaign contributions. Though we fell short, we are proud of the grassroots campaign we ran and over 365,000 Floridians joined our cause and voted for our campaign. On election night, I promised to never stop fighting and I asked you to never stop fighting! So in this connection, we are going to keep this page - what used to be our campaign Facebook page - up and running. I am going to be focusing on the causes I’m most passionate about - fighting for our consumers, advocating for addiction recovery, and doing everything I can to make sure we advance a progressive, pro-people agenda here in Florida!
