Public Comment

Good Evening Neighbor:

This has been an extremely busy past two weeks for the Task Force.  We have been writing the rebuttal to the State Health Department's Report - or as I call it "their non-report".  We plan to formally present the document to the Department of Health at our Town Hall Meeting on July 19, 2007 at Bethany United Methodist Church 7pm - this will mark one year from the day we had our first Town Hall Meeting.  

As part of our Public Comment, the Health Department asks that you put your comments in writing - please, please do so.  It does not matter if you live directly in our community - you can make a difference by insisting in your letter that they continue to follow our community in the coming years.  They can begin by using serious monetary resources to actually monitor and treat our community through the use of physical exams.  We know that many of us are sick presently and many of us will become sick in the years to come.  They must take our exposure to Ethoprop seriously!  

Please email your Public Comment to me and I will print it for the Task Force Document and then I will send it on to the State Health Department.  We are hoping to have several hundred letters, so please do your part and ask your neighbors to do so as well.  The letters are to be directed to Mr. Sanchez - given below.

Your Neighbor,
