Here you’ve got one heck of a momma grizzly defending her child, her family, and the nearby Weller Elementary School. Apparently she, too, received the postcard mailing from the North Star Landowners, sponsors of Proposition A.
The following was submitted as a letter to the editor of the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner 10/3/2010.
by Patrice Lee, Fairbanks
To the editor:
The North Star Landowners and Tammie Wilson should not send anymore literature or information to 676 Hillcrest Dr. Do not waste the paper, the postage or the energy!
The next person who fouls the air over my property may be the recipient of my lawsuit, and it is very likely you will be named as well, if you believe your right to pollute the air flowing over my property stands. Air flows like water. You can’t pollute the water upstream, fouling the water downstream. Air works the same way.
There are many programs available to stop or reduce the pollution while helping residents heat their homes until more affordable energy is available! I support these.
My child has suffered through four open heart surgeries, and I’ll be damned if anyone is going to damage my property with pollution that affects the health of my child or my family or any of the children at the nearby school. I have attended meetings and voted to support assistance to those who truly need it.
I love the advertisement about the guy with the 7,000 square foot house who has to use wood heat because of the high cost of oil. I responsibly bought a house that I could afford to heat at 1,800 square feet. Your love of excess, toys, guns whatever you buy that keeps you from being able to afford to heat your home doesn’t give you any right to pollute the air that we all have to breathe.
Where I live, inversions only happen once in a long while. We knew the day our neighbor started to burn. Our eyes and lungs burned while working in our yard and we had to keep our son inside. This ordinance isn’t about staying warm. It’s about you and your RIGHTS.
Why don’t I ever hear you or Tammie Wilson speak of RESPONSIBILITIES! With you loose on the borough we can expect filthy water, mini Superfund sites for campaign headquarters, filthy air, and loss of Federal funding for roads. As if that isn’t enough, you want to repeal the healthcare legislation so we can just suck up your pollution, get cancer and suffer the consequences. Great planning! Super compassion for you constituents! All this while touting your Judeo-Christian ethic!
No on A!!!!!!
