Supervisors showed moxy

September 1, 2011

The Lackawaxen township supervisors showed some moxy in approving the Holbert Quarry expansion. Lackawaxen needs jobs. The politics of pretending that he will impact the river will not feed a hungry child. The federal government’s land grab in the corridor should be challenged.

Thanks for this letter.

You have walked into the lion's den (this paper) and stated your opinion. We need more people and more local governments fighting the feds and even the states so they can preserve their rights, our rights. Otherwise, we have the most populated areas, like NYC and Jersey, dictating how we use our land and resources. That is not what made this country great. We need men and women of courage and integrity to fight for the rights of those they represent. Everything in life is not geared to please NYC and to keep them knee deep in unfiltered water. We have rights, but only if we fight for them.
