Letter about preserving Houston County’s land and people...


Mon, Mar 2nd, 2015
Posted in All Letter to the Editor

To the Editor,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Houston County Commissioners for their very courageous action on Wednesday, 18 February to ban frac sand mining in Houston County. The Public Hearing was a moving testimonial to grass roots democracy, as person after person stood up to speak on behalf of preserving the long-term health and well-being of Houston County’s land and people. It was also touching to see a few persons from outside our county speak to how much they care about what happens here. The final ban will not be enacted until March 3, so letters and calls are still needed. Let’s continue to work toward making Houston County the first county in Minn. and Wisc. to ban frac sand mining. And, again, Commissioners, thank you for standing up on the right side of history on this most important issue for our county.

Sincerely yours,

Drue Fergison
