Letter to the Editor
Sept. 25, 2012
To the editor:
Proposition 3 is quite honestly one of the most idiotic propositions raised in this town. It essentially takes the power away from our borough to regulate our heating sources, which we know cause the poor air conditions.
First of all, we absolutely must do something about our air quality. I have no respiratory problems, and I have trouble breathing in winter. Imagine small children, those with asthma and the elderly.
Second of all, if we take the power away from our local government, we are guaranteeing that power to the federal government. They have given us until 2014 to do something about the air quality. When we don’t, the EPA is going to come down on us like the hand of God.
Keep this in mind as you head to the voting booths on Oct. 3.
