We have just been alerted that there will be a "public forum" at SUNY
Oswego at 7pm on Wednesday, July 14th. The only speakers will be from Bion
and they claim the public will be allowed to ask questions. Reservations are
required and the link is below.
Bion wants to put a facility in Oswego County. If completed, the proposed
integrated and closed-loop processing project would be the largest cattle
livestock facility east of the Mississippi River. The facility would
provide an estimated 500 to 600 full-time, skilled and semi-skilled jobs for the
Oswego County regional economy.
This would be a disaster on so many levels.
It is vitally important that we all be there to ask questions of them and
shed light upon this project. There is power in numbers and a strong
showing is very important to our campaign. Bion is moving forward with their
plans and we need to continue to move forward with ours.
The lawn signs will be here July 7th and the buttons by July 12th. We are
asking for a $5 donation for a sign and a button to cover costs, if at all
possible. Please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org_
(315) 436-1039 to get yours!
Please feel free to forward this information to anyone who you feel should
be there as well.
Thank you all for your support and hard work.
