David Williams...


Fri, Sep 20th, 2013
Posted in Rushford Letter to the Editor



To the Editor,

Does anyone imagine for a minute that the vendetta against David Williams is unrelated to the frac sand mining struggle? Does anyone think the accusatory column wasn’t initiated by someone on the pro mining side of this debate? The article was so stupid it does give us clues as to which local supporters of mining may have written it.

David Williams is one of the key people helping southeast Minnesotans protect ourselves from the dangers of industrial scale frac sand mining. Others of us engaged in this effort have experienced threats, intimidation, retaliation and smear campaigns. This ugliness has now been visited upon the good and highly knowledgeable Williams.

I have a challenge to the pro mining forces: Why don’t you just make your case to the people with as much transparency, honesty and integrity as you can muster? Tell us why we should risk our health, safety, drinking water, air quality, trout streams, thriving tourism industry, roads, tax dollars, home values and investments, and our scenic treasure just so that a handful of you can make a lot of money. The fact that you haven’t been able to do this explains why you are now attacking Williams.
