The Port St. Joe Port Authority recently launched its 2014 Capital Campaign to raise funds to cover its necessary operating expenses for the coming year.  Letters and pledge forms were sent to various businesses and individuals in the area.



The Port Authority is progressing on a “Fast Track” to be operational by early to mid-2015.  This is exciting news in that an operational port will bring needed jobs and increased business activity in Gulf County and the surrounding region.  For this to happen, we desperately need your financial support to keep the Port Authority active until such time as we have a revenue source from the leasing of Port Authority property and/or collection of fees from port users.



Those of you who received pledge notices; we ask that you please return them with your contribution. To those who did not receive letters, your contribution, in any amount, would be deeply appreciated.



Send contributions to:



The Port St. Joe Port Authority



Post Office Box 745



Port St. Joe, FL 32457.



The Port is our greatest asset and will be for generations to come.



Please lend your support NOW!



Sincerely,



Leonard Costin, Chairman                Jason Shoaf, Secretary    Joanna White, Past Chariwoman



Eugene Raffield, Vice Chariman      Jessica Rish, Treasurer
