The air in downtown Shelton is visibly dirtier than that near the Hospital–egregiously so. Some have argued the attention Adage gets at the expense of poorer downtown residents suffering under Simpson’s filth raises challenges to the notion of social justice.
I’d like to PROPOSE the following:
Purchase a 2nd air monitoring station (and equipment) similar to the existing one on the roof of Mason County General Hospital, to be installed in downtown Shelton. A private coalition of citizens would need to purchase it for timely data gathering. The expense would be less than the attorney hired by Concerned Citizens and likely more valuable in providing FACTS for future court consideration.
Shawnie has photo-documented this visible filth raining down on Shelton residents, 24/7. The invisible, more harmful portion is even deadlier. Our County Sheriff should be invited to host the installation on the roof of his new downtown quarters paid for at taxpayer expense. It would demonstrate the meaning of “to protect and to serve”.
It would also provide verifiable data/facts to argue Simpson is a filthy dirty anachronism whose jobs relevancy is currently little more than a historical footnote and HAS to go in the future chemical trespass lawsuits certain to come as a result of its pollution. Moreover, such a station would not only help protect the community, but would be available long after any attorney has forgotten how to spell ‘Shelton’, the town that choked on its own hubris.
