Ed Young, Group 4 Print

Telephone: 321-277-4669

Information: Ed Young has been a resident of Central Florida since 1990. He believes in giving back to the community and has done so as public school teacher and as an elected member of Seminole Soil & Water Conservation District. Mr. Young believes in conserving and taking care of Florida’s natural resources not only as they serve as the backbone of Florida’s tourism economy but so that future generations may enjoy Florida’s natural gifts as well.

Since being elected to SSWCD, Mr. Young has helped organize conservation poster contests through local schools, surveyed and reviewed several state parks for the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, and spoken out in favor of new solar energy amendments.

Mr. Young became Group 4 Supervisor for Seminole Soil & Water Conservation District during a special election in 2014 where he ran unopposed and currently serves as treasurer for SSWCD since being nominated for the position in January of 2015.

Mr. Young holds a Bachelors degree in Communications from Flagler College and a Masters degree in Educational Leadership from Stetson University.

Ed Young's feelings on the following issues:

  • Believes fracking is a state issue and not a federal one.
  • Does not believe the federal government should involve itself unless it involves federal land and then that the federal government should honor what the locality has decided is the policy regarding fracking.
  • Does not believe that fracking should be permitted in the state of Florida. Florida limestone bedrock is too porous and poses too much of a threat to Florida’s aquifers.

Solar Energy
  • Is against any legal obstacles put in place by the government or a utility that restricts access to this renewable energy source.
  • Publicly supports and has endorsed an amendment to the Florida State Constitution known as “Limits or Prevents Barriers to Local Solar Electricity Supply.”

Beach Driving
  • Is in favor of banning all driving save for emergency vehicles on Florida’s beaches.
  • Believes all Florida beaches need to be regularly nourished and replenished.

  • Believes recycling should be made available in all residential areas including condominiums, apartments, and hotels.
  • Supports incentives for businesses that actively conduct recycling programs on their premises.

Water Conservation
  • Supports all governmental buildings and parks to converting their public bathrooms to “low flow” toilets, water conserving faucets, and water-free urinals.
  • Supports incentives for local small businesses that install “low flow” toilets, water conserving faucets, and/or water-free urinals in their bathrooms.
  • Supports a ban on all watering of publicly, privately, and commercially owned lawns between the hours 10AM and 6PM with the exception of freshly laid sod.
