                      NATURIST ACTION COMMITTEE

DATE   : June 03, 2004
SUBJECT: Hillsborough County, Florida
TO     : All naturists

Dear Naturist,

The Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) of Hillsborough County, Florida, spent more than an hour yesterday dealing with a proposed anti-nudity ordinance and a petition demanding that the ordinance be put on county ballots for the November election. This is the situation described in the NAC Action Alert of May 26, 2004.

A group driven by local religious leaders delivered petitions they said had been signed by more than 10,000 citizens. Commissioner Ronda Storms made a number of inflammatory statements from the dais, including a declaration that the proposed ban on nudity was necessary to prevent sexual intercourse in public places.


Statements by other commissioners reflected many of the points suggested by the Naturist Action Committee in its Action Alert. That's an indication that your efforts have hit the mark, and NAC thanks all those who took the time to contact one or more members of the Hillsborough County BOCC.


Commissioner Storms introduced the proposed anti-nudity ordinance, which died for lack of a second.


Most Commissioners indicated that they would prefer to wait for the outcome of the federal court case from nearby Manatee County before readdressing the matter of an anti-nudity ordinance for Hillsborough County.


Additional information about the proposed Hillsborough County ordinance is available on the web site of the Naturist Action Committee:
