TALLAHASSEE , Fl. – December 6, 2011

Kristina Janolo, Miss Florida 2011, will speak about restoring the Everglades during a meeting with Gov. Rick Scott and the Florida Cabinet on Tuesday, Dec. 6.

(Note: Janolo is at the top of the Cabinet agenda. The meeting begins at 9 a.m.)

“Water is a basic, necessary substance for life. It is part of everything we drink and eat. We cannot find an alternative to water,” Janolo wrote in a recent column for Orlando Sentinel. “ That is one of the reasons that as Miss Florida 2011, I will compete for Miss America by talking about water issues -- the need to develop water-friendly policies, and oppose any effort to diminish our fragile Everglades ecosystem.”

Janolo, 24, is from Kissimmee and is a marketing major at the University of Central Florida. Janolo is Miss Florida 2011 and she will represent the Sunshine State in the 2012 Miss America pageant.

“Tomorrow I will urge Governor Scott and the Florida Cabinet to secure the water supply for 7 million Floridians by moving Everglades Restoration forward.” said Janolo.

She recently traveled to Washington, D.C. where she met with members of Florida’s congressional delegation to discuss Everglades issues.
