Voice: Maruca fighting the good fight in battling power plants

November 20, 2001

Thank you county Supervisor Joe Maruca for the moves against power plants in Mexicali. I am against it, too, for I know it is not a good thing for our health. The pollution here in the Valley is bad enough.

I have problems with asthma and allergies. Most of my family has the same thing. You see, we are now four generations here in Imperial Valley and I want it as safe as possible, especially for the young children. We were all born here and plan to stay here.

You say the others on Board of Supervisors didn't help you. This is a lot like the mess they were getting into in Westmorland regarding the hazardous waste disposal site and a lot of other different things they do without letting the people know about it.

Is the Environmental Protection Agency aware of what's going on? They seem to be slipping regarding their responsibilities to the public.

Mr. Maruca, keep up the good work and keep fighting for our health and well-being in this valley.

People, wake up and get involved! It's for your own benefit. Let's work together to stop those pollution-creating power plants.
