People should talk about how they would be impacted
I think the key idea to get across is that this industry would have extremely serious impacts on real people's lives and on our land and our communities. So, people should talk about how they would be impacted and whatever concerns they feel most strongly about. All of that will be good to say.
On Monday morning, March 25th, from 9-10 am, I will be on Minnesota Public Radio's Daily Circuit program talking about the frac sand issue. The other main guest will be an industry representative (possibly Dennis Egan, Minnesota Industrial Sand Council lobbyist and soon-to-be-former Red Wing Mayor), and St. Charles Mayor Bill Spitzer will also join the program for a few minutes.It will be a call-in show, so let's get people filling up the phone lines, starting right away at 9:00. The number will be 651-227-6000. Please share this email with your lists and spread the word widely.Thanks,Johanna RupprechtPolicy OrganizerLand Stewardship Project
