With a population of more than 700,000, Lee County is one of the fastest growing metro areas in the country. Unfortunately, too many of those residents are uninformed about the issues and the consequences of current decisions being made by county government on their behalf. Lee Future believes the solution lies in providing residents with factual information, necessary context, and the tools they need to hold our public servants accountable.
