Michael LoBue: Other Industry Group Pushes False Narrative

Your article in Voices of Monterey Bay: “Where Have All the Florists Gone?” contains half-truths and a completely wrong premise.

Here’s my rebuttal: http://www.cafgs.org/index.php?option=com_dailyplanetblog&view=entry&year=2018&month=02&day=14&id=19:let-s-stop-weaponizing-flowers-for-political-reasons

You may quote me, but the next time you want to do an article on the floral industry, please feel free to contact me. CCFC has been pushing an inaccurate and tired narrative that doesn’t do anyone in the industry a favor — even those that subscribe to that narrative.
