I live in Elk River, where our community has suffered flooding and continual damage to our river from industrial logging, first by Maxxam/PL and now by HRC.
Our efforts to protect these watersheds, including the Headwaters Forest watershed, have been stymied by CDF and the Water Board, and also by a BoS unwilling to use lawful regulations to protect the lives and property of residents, and restore precious coho salmon habitat.
We have been attacked by ruffians for trying to defend our homes, and been ignored by the local sheriff, DA and our Supervisors, who appear more aligned with the offenders than their constituents. We need a BoS that is responsive to the “little people” for a change. Steve Madrone in the 5th District would bring that change.
