  1. I just want to second your kudos for the Toxics Action Center.

    When I was leading a lengthy fight against a major new coal-burning cement plant proposed in New York State near the Massachusetts border, TAC provided substantive help to our citizen’s organization.

    At the time we were working with Jay Rasku, who has since moved on to other pursuits, but it is great to hear that they are still doing such important work assisting local groups fighting the good fight.

    Keep going, you can and will win!

  2. 2 Square Miles about Hudson NY was a vision we hope to share Sam. Personally I found your plight of David very fulfiling when you won. Groups such as Toxic Actions Center are a godsend and the true stewards of the nation.

    Thank you Sam for your contributions to not only helping those in Hudson…but here is Cranston RI. FYI, we in turn have helped some in need of help like a recent e-mail to us from Pennsylvania who ae fighting the same thing and our website has helped them. I know we will prevail as you have.

    Be well,
    Suzanne Arena
