Local political groups join forces to support mine

(Editor's note: In a rare show of solidarity, local Democrats are joining with Republicans and the Tea Party at a special meeting to encourage release of the Environmental Impact Statement from The U. S. Forest Service in order to speed up the beginnings of two mining operations in Arizona. One of those, The Resolution Copper Mine, would employ about 300 Gila County citizens in a clean environment mine near Miami/Globe. The other is near Tucson. We can only hope these groups will also work together to achieve fair redistricting for northern Gila County and to protect Medicare and Social Security at the expense of tax breaks for the wealthy and large corporations, and excessive defense spending. Here is the meeting notice:) 

All people who are interested in helping the Resolution Copper mine near Globe and the Rosemont Mine near Tucson get through the red tape are invited to meet on Thursday, May 5 at Tiny’s at 6 pm. This is the normal time for Tea Party to meet but this is for ALL people (all parties, no party, and independents) interested in helping Gila Co and AZ to gain great tax revenues to benefit our corner of the world. Information will be passed out by the CEO of Rosemont to show how we activists can assist. Why should Americans pay for so much imported copper?

For more information about the meeting, call Dan Adams 474-8161, Ed Blair 472-3021, Shirley Dye 468-1131, Jerry Foster 978-4031, Andy McKinney 951-0325.
