Do you have a list of people living in Brookridge who are interested in this issue? Everyone I talk to has had an asthma like cough this spring that has hung on for long periods. I never had a cough like this in my 76 years and suppose the chemicals resulting from burning at the cement and power plants to be the cause; so I am very much against this permit.

I have a petition and will get others to sign. I want to organize car pooling to get more people to attend the July 14th meeting. I envision many large trucks taking up much parking space when a company with as many assets as CEMEX is involved; so busing hundreds seems in order.

When Tropical Storm Debby came through in June 2012, some wells in our area were affected (we live on Brooksville Rock Road). We and some of our neighbors in the area had to abandon our existing well and have a new one dug shortly after. Many people’s well water was the color of chocolate milk. We had heard rumor of a retention pond or something at Cemex also being affected at that time and that, in turn, is what caused people’s wells to be affected. We also heard that Cemex paid for new wells to be dug for some people and in some cases provided water to others until their existing well cleared up. I think someone should look into what happened at Cemex during that time and, if so, how many wells in the area were affected. I think it would be a powerful tool to use against allowing Cemex to expand.

At the meeting in December a concerned citizen brought up the point that the commissioners should recuse themselves from the vote if they received campaign contributions to get elected from CEMEX. None of the commissioners that voted for the mining denied this. This represents a serious conflict of interest. Since that is the case this item carries such a huge impact on future economics in this county, there fore it should be put up to vote by the county’s constituents as a referendum on a ballot so county’s residents should vote on this issue and not let it be decided by four individuals…………………………………

Hello. I received my ballot in the mail. I don’t want to vote for Cemex backed candidates. Can you tell me who you all are endorsing?
