We have the opportunity to vote for genuine progress in BG this Nov. 5, rather than the usual choice of the lesser of two evils. Firstly, we can vote yes to amend BG's charter and ban fracking, a method of gas extraction that releases cancer-causing radon and hydrocarbons into our air and water. Over 150 communities across the U.S. have adopted similar proposals without the economic gloom predicted by opponents of the charter amendment. Their misleading statements have been based on false scenarios and dishonest city 'leaders' need to be held accountable.
In addition to protecting the natural environment of Bowling Green, we have a chance to bring greater social justice to Bowling Green and elect Green Party candidate Joe DeMare to city council. Joe will work for policies that favor local entrepreneurs over chain corporations, in addition to increasing the supply of clean, affordable energy. With two seats open in city council, we each have two votes and can support Joe DeMare in addition to any other favored candidate. Moreover, we have a chance to elect a third-party candidate and send a message to the two larger parties to work for all residents and not just the privileged few. On Tuesday, Nov. 5, please vote for the BG charter amendment and Joe DeMare for city council.
