Morgan was calling to tell us that the information sheet that he is working
with Buddy and Senator Lewis on is to be put out in the form of a hearing
officer's recommendation. The recommendation, as you know, is usually pro-
vided in the form of a brief history, findings of fact, conclusions and then
recommendations. Morgan and Buddy feel that this objective way to relate
information about the referendum would come across as the most nonbiased.
Morgan was also calling and wanting us to send him facts on issues. He was
not certain as to just what these facts are. I asked him to call if he wants
specific information and between now (4:00 p.m.) and 5:00 o'clock I'll be
trying to put something together to get in the mail today.
He also mentioned that Trudy Bernhardt told him that she has learned that the
Martin County Conservation Alliance will be taking a strong stance in support
of the referendum even to the point that they will be contributing dollars to
Flow, Inc. or purchasing space in local newspapers. The Conservation Alliance
has about 4,000 people according to Morgan.
