Town Hall Meetings

Good Morning Neighbor:

I attended Congressman Scott's Town Hall Meeting on Saturday and they were gracious enough to let me  go beyond my two minutes to give the speech below.
Please take some time and read it - after learning so much over the past two years - the need for Buffer Zone Legislation is where we are heading.  I do not have to tell you that Georgia has none.  I am also including a new posting by the AJC today on pharmaceuticals found in drinking water all across this country.  Once again industry told them, there were no harmful levels found even though municipalities did not even have testing for pharmaceuticals in drinking water.  It wasn't until the Associated Press hired independent researchers that all of this was found.  This article gives a summary of the published results.  If you remember, we have been told the same thing that our drinking water is safe yet there is no testing for Ethoprop in our drinking water so how could anyone have ever told us we were safe!!

Last, but not least, I want to remind everyone of the Quarry Town Hall meeting this Wednesday at 7pm.  It will be held at the Burdette Gym off of Burdette road off of Old National.  Remember, what is happening to our Quarry community touches us all!!!!

Your neighbor,


Constance Thomas Biemiller, Chair

As Margaret Mead once said:

Never underestimate the power of a few committed people to change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.
