It's with great enthusiasm that I write today to express my support of the DEIS, the study was thorough and it’s time to get Millennium Bulk Terminals port off the ground and under construction. We need the jobs this terminal will provide.
At a time when Washington needs jobs, we cannot turn away the kind of opportunity that the proposed Millennium Bulk Terminal would provide. The project would create work right away during construction, and plenty more jobs would stay around to run the terminal. Plus, all of those wages generated would trickle back into our local and state economies. At a time when our state unemployment rates are below the national average, we cannot miss big opportunities for new business like this one.
Millennium Bulk Terminals in Longview is offering to create jobs and livelihoods in a beautiful area of the country. This project deserves support for all the benefits it will provide. Thank you for letting me lend my support to it.
