“Florida growers have been asked to give even more money to the CRDF because Rick Dantzler thinks they need to show the state that they have ‘skin in the game’ to show the state when they lobby for research grants. This is a massive wealth transfer from mostly small family farms to big agribusiness like Bayer-Monsanto. Enough is enough,” said Jesse Rojas, Director of Save Citrus.
Rojas made the statement in announcing a second set of radio ads.
Our Florida radio ads to citrus growers: Don't believe Rick Dantzler's "skin in the game" line. He's wasted your money and lost you years of time. He's skinning you alive. https://t.co/MteWQIgsaJ @ChristinaPushaw
