Candidates’ Public Forum on Water Quality

Thanh -- September 27th, 2007

There will be a Candidates’ Public Forum at the Rockingham County Board of Supervisors meeting room on October 9, 2007 from 7:00 to 8:30pm where citizens will have an opportunity to hear viewpoints on water issues related to:

  1. the ongoing fish kills in the Shenandoah Valley,
  2. reduction of non-point source pollution,
  3. growth and water resources

The website lists 9 candidates who will be attending. This forum is sponsored by a number of environmental and water quality-related organizations. Looks like a pretty interesting opportunity.

    Very interesting, Thanh.

    It’s interesting to me also because this was one of Lowell Fulk’s issues during the last election cycle in the 26th district that did not get any media attention.

    How the tide of public opinion has turned.

    I’m hoping that agriculture industry stakeholders (farmers, dairymen, poultry producers) will show up at this forum to add their two-cents. I want to know how we protect and support agriculture, while guiding sustainable growth in the Valley.
