Letters to the Editor

Backyard chickens

To the editor: Commissioner Chairman Hamman’s (District 4) motion for a Land Development Code allowing backyard chickens and Commissioner Mann’s (District 5) motion to pass it is not in the best interest of Lee County. I moved to Lehigh Acres because it was a residential area, not an ...

Political leadership is clueless
