Fort Myers Mayor Randy Henderson is in Honolulu, Hawaii this weekend taking a big step forward for water quality in Southwest Florida.

Mayor Henderson is attending the “The United States Conference of Mayors’ 87th Annual Meeting.”

Southwest Florida mayors are using the opportunity to push for $200 million in federal support for the Everglades.

“Helps us drive economic development opportunities and improve the city in a host of ways,” Mayor Henderson said. “Fort Myers has several good stories to offer other mayors, and I think they can benefit from some tactical evidence of our experience there.”
