Thank you for fighting dump

Dear Editor,

Again let me say, thanks be to God!  The Public Hearing for the 5,000-acre Dump was held last Thursday at 9 a.m. at Ed Reid Technical College in Evergreen.

With not being allowed to park in the parking lot, it being held on a week day during work hours and the auditorium only having a capacity to hold 425, more than 800 hundred people turned out!  And, six counties were represented that day!  Thank you folks for your NO DUMP dedication!

The meeting started at 9 a.m. and lasted until just after 5 p.m.

Most people who signed up to speak against the dump didn’t get a chance to speak because they were not called upon until after lunch and they had to leave before then.  And, there were only six people who spoke in support of the dump plus Jimmy Stone, the investor and his lawyer Mr. Agricola.  Had the Conecuh County Commission had this hearing at a convenient time for the public and in a venue that would accommodate more people, I feel confident there would have been an even greater turn out!  I only hope & pray that our Commissioners were listening!  Again, thanks to ALL for doing their part in this NO DUMP fight!

Remember, the vote can be taken any time from now until April 21.  If there is not a vote, it constitutes an automatic approval!  Please continue to contact the Conecuh County Commission and urge them to vote  & vote NO!  Conecuh County Commission, PO Box 347, Evergreen, Al 36401 / 251-578-2095 / admin@conecuhcounty.us
