Frank Moe: EPA meeting important

To the editor:

Wednesday’s EPA community “COAL” meeting is truly the opportunity to not only overcome the naysayers statements that “no one on the Front Range will listen” but is the opportunity to change the decision makers’ minds. I would personally like to thank everyone who throughout the past four years, have written letters, made phone calls, sent emails, attended coal rallies and testified at hearings. All of your activism has paid off. Now that we have the EPA coming to Craig and Moffat County, we have the opportunity to change minds. We are going to only have this one opportunity to make a great first impression on the EPA. The Moffat County High School auditorium seats approximately 888 people and we need to fill every seat with truly informed, highly motivated, outspoken and respectful attendees. This is our greatest chance to change their minds and let them see and meet the community members that their decisions will affect. Please take the time out of your busy schedules to help ensure all of the seats in the auditorium are full.

There will be a community barbecue at the south parking lot of the high school starting at 5 p.m. for the first 500 attendees. I would also like to thank Tony St. John for raising the funds for the barbecue and of course all of the donors and especially everyone responsible for making this meeting a reality.

The doors to the auditorium will open at 6 p.m. and the meeting will start promptly at 6:30 p.m.
