The following is a letter I submitted to the Mason County Journal. It was not printed.

I speak, of course, of the biomass fueled incinerator proposed by Adage at John’s Prairie Road.
But, on November 2, the public will have a rare opportunity to regain control of the Port by voting YES on Propositions 1, YES on Initiative 1 and YES on Initiative 2.
In essence, voting yes on these three issues would 1) Allow candidate
s residing outside the Port’s political sub-area to run for the position of Port Commissioner. 2) Reduce the term limits of Port Commissioners from six to four years. 3) Increase the number of Port Commissioners from three to five.

The net result will be to provide the public better, more responsive, less entrenched representation than it currently toils under.
If these choices had been on the ballot in the last general election, the biomass issue that has plagued and divided residents over the past six months would likely be nothing more than a foolish footnote in Mason County’s history.
TAKE BACK THE PORT! VOTE YES ON PROP. 1 AND INITIATIVES 1 & 2.
WE CAN’T AFFORD NOT TO!
