  All Politics is Local --- Communities are Under Siege ---
Snip from email sent to the Delaware working group. --

(as the only apparent communication link such as it is to Msr. Tom Carper; Joe Biden; Mike Castle) I would also appreciate it if we could get some representation at the federal level. We don't need more of our representatives telling us how it is in Iraq. We would like some protection from the predatory practices of big businesses with Government entanglements like the airline industry/FAA. It feels like our communities are under siege - large airplanes constantly invading the airspace over our homes. Something has to change! We need protection under the law.

My belief is that in America it should be incumbent on businesses to demonstrate that the consequences of the business decisions they make in pursuit of profits do not have adverse affects on the public. If they don't or can't then either get out of business or face penalties/punishment. For a number of years I claim that my community is being increasingly subject to discriminate abuse because of operations decisions that PHL/FAA have made. Noise pollution; air pollution; accident risk have increased for us because of concentrations and increases in landing/take-off operations. We've asked many times that something be done about it, and the situation just continues to get worse.

DE Judge has conscience.. -- Environmentalists for Truth
Thank you for the note. I have been very concerned about the increasing airplane pollution problem engulfing DE -- both air and noise pollution. I actually studied this issue for CAC's Philadelphia office a while back. If you would like to put something together explaining the issue in a concise manner with a few solutions, I would love to put something up on my website.

All Politics is Local -- DEBATE ANNOUNCEMENT LETTER LISTING THE CANIDATES
Let's ask Mr. Castle, Gov. Minner, and Judge Lee about their position on this issue and many others October 14 @ Brandywine High School. I did not know in America we had to call (the local airport) PHL and check flight patterns before we organize for prayer outside in our own backyards. Wonder what they will say when asked this question?

Editorial: There’s no debating -- Weldon’s too popular --
The Delaware County Times -- 10/08/2004
It’s a shame and a pity that 7th District voters won’t have the opportunity to see if 18 years in Washington has improved Weldon’s debating skills any. Or to hear his account of what he’s been doing for them lately. Naturally, when stories appear in the newspapers about the event, the Weldon campaign will then accuse the reporters of bias.
