Concerned homeowners affected by toxic Chinese drywall are organizing a rally to be held December 5, 2009 at the Shell Factory in North Fort Myers from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. The focus of the rally is the effect of toxic sulfur compound emissions from the drywall on children’s health. The organizers hope to both provide practical help to affected homeowners and send a message to Congress that help is needed, and quickly. To raise funds for the rally, the organizers are selling T-shirts and other items with the slogan, “Got toxic drywall? A headache that just doesn’t go away. . . .” Florida’s Lt. Gov. Jeff Kottcamp, whose North Fort Myers home contains the tainted drywall, is expected to attend the rally.
