Thank you for addressing the Elm water situation in your recent posting. This issue has been used before. When Barbara Holcomb was running for Mayor the Township news letter had an article stating:

"The Township has authorized its engineer to begin work on the design of a water system in the Spring Road area of the Township. It is anticipated that the design and permitting phase will take approximately eight [8] months to complete with construction expected in the spring of 2004."

I can only wonder how many times this will be used before we ever see a water system but it seems to me that they have milked it long enough. I also think that the money paid to the engineer for this project over the years has probably been sent back to the Democrats in the form of campaign contributions many times over. As far as I can remember they have been designing this project since at least 2001. A very nice money pot. It would be interesting to find out just how much this project has cost taxpayers so far. I think it has already cost residents the promise of free hookups that was intended to be a part of the settlement with Metec. After eleven years of tugging heavy bottles around and living with impure water which is believed to be the cause of the many illnesses in our area we will now be saddled with the cost of hookups if the Democrats get their way. To think that they are using this as a plus for the residents is more than I can digest without becoming sick.

I only hope that the Republican campaign literature will contain the same rebuttals that you have regarding the Democratic literature. It is too bad that the Courier does not offer the same thing.

Personally, I think our local Democrats belong in Washington , they would fit in nicely with "Scooter".

Anyway, keep up the good work, I only hope and pray that it achieves the desired results.
