Great work, Shink! Proud of ya

Odd, Shrink is "proud to advocate for the well-being, safety, and quality of life of our seniors". Does she care about the quality of life of the constituents that live in rural areas of MI? Rural residents basically have no protection of home wrecking, community destroying, wind and solar projects. Thanks Shrink.

That's a beautiful sentiment. Liberty: State Democrats remove local zoning of community destroying industrial projects while taking donations from industrial developers. Justice: State Democrats eliminate all resident zoning protections allowing industrial developers to destroy their homes. Democracy: State Democrats feel comfortable destroying rural homes and communities because they know rural areas lack the numbers and political power to defend themselves. Shink loves government power.

Could you comment on Slide 6? That has me really concerned about what additional burdensome regulations small family farms could have to endure. Somehow, it always seems the large producers ‘check the boxes’ to build toxic lagoons while small rotational grazers like me get saddled with a lot more paperwork to meet some administrative requirement.

We need to remove EGLE's powers rather than give them more leeway. The fact that they don't have set rules to go by in many areas and that they don't have qualified people who understand what theyre enforcing is scary.

I hope EGLE and your office will continue to watch what’s happening with Willbee Concrete in Summit Township. They say it’s impossible for contaminants to get into the river because water can’t go uphill.
