Your Chance To Ask McDonnell, “How Clean Is Too Clean?”


    ( – promoted by lowkell)

    You’ve probably been following the McDonnell administration’s attacks on the environment over the past eight months. They’ve advocated for drilling off our coast, proposed closing five state parks, tried to cut funding for Chesapeake Bay restoration by over $11 million and seem to want every square inch of the commonwealth paved for yet another road. Just last week McDonnell’s Secretary of Natural Resources stated that the EPA was requiring the state of Virginia to make the James River too clean. So just how clean is too clean?

    Now’s our chance to tell the Governor directly that we reject his vision for Virginia. The Governor is holding eight town halls across Virginia this month to include this upcoming meeting in Norfolk.

    McDonnell’s Townhall Meeting in Norfolk

    Monday, August 9, 2010, 7:00pm-8:30pm

    Old Dominion University, Webb University Center, 4201 Hampton Blvd., Norfolk

    We need to show up in force and question the Governor on his environmental plan. In order to make these town halls as effective as possible we’ve scheduled regional conference calls for our members and activists to join for an issues and tactics briefing.

    The Sierra Club Teleforum for Norfolk is scheduled for tonight, Thursday, August 5 at 7 PM. Email for conference call instructions.

    Click here for our talking points and suggested questions to make this super easy, but don’t hesitate to come up with your own issues to share with the Governor.

    • Dan Sullivan

      You are going to interfere with his agenda! Enjoy!

      Well, since there are people who depend on the James River for their drinking water, since the James is an integral part of the history of this state, since for generations the James was an open sewer for every business and every settlement near it, I fail to see how it could ever be “too clean.”

    • And this AG hated the EPA, eieio.

      With a frivolous lawsuit here, a frivolous lawsuit there.

      Here a frivolous lawsuit, there a frivolous lawsuit, everywhere a frivolous lawsuit.

      Old McDonnell had an AG, eieio.
