Submission Text
Despite all the rhetoric to the contrary about coal exports, I firmly believe you can have both good family-wage jobs and be good stewards of the environment. It doesn’t have to be a choice of one over the other. Cowlitz County continues to have a high unemployment rate. We need these jobs and we’ve paid a high cost with this drawn out permitting process so far. It’s time to stop the delay and bring about development and economic relief. Thank you for listening.
