Voice op­po­si­tion to your coun­cil

Cecil Whig - - OPINION -

FROM: LINDA HUNT NORTH EAST

Af­ter at­tend­ing a re­cent Citizens’ Cor­ner meet­ing, I was shocked and dis­ap­pointed. A packed room came to voice their op­po­si­tion to the pro­posed chicken fac­tory. How can our county al­low Per­due to come in and take over like this?

If one more per­son tries to tell us 200,000 chick­ens won’t con­tam­i­nate the wa­ter, won’t pol­lute the air and will only smell a lit­tle, how naive do they think we are? Oh wait, that is all the agen­cies lin­ing up to make Ce­cil County the new chicken cap­i­tal. This kind of op­er­a­tion may or may not be nec­es­sary, but not in the mid­dle of hun­dreds of homes.

Farms are the heart of Ce­cil County, but this is not fam­ily farm­ing it is in­dus­trial scale agri­cul­ture. Even if it is all sun­shine and roses like Per­due says, who is go­ing to make sure all the rules and reg­u­la­tions are fol­lowed? Oh, we don’t seem to have any, that is why Per­due wants in!

Be­fore it is too late get in­volved, do some re­search and let your County Coun­cil know what you think!
