A Little Humor
Dear Port of St. Helens Commissioners. As you have likely noticed the farmers of Port Westward have purchased about 957 acres of the Port land. I know times have been tough and you've needed the cash. In any case we are applying to rezone this land to prime Agricultural. I know...I know you've invested millions in infrastructure and now its all going to be bulldozed...in the name of food! It's hard to say goodbye to all that beautiful concrete being replaced by healthy soil. Relax. We've got your back. There will be no problems once we take out all the rail roads going through the Port areas. Fewer organic blueberry spills. I completely understand your worry about the environmental impact..all that juice running onto your precious concrete and asphalt. Please understand we work VERY hard to keep our train cars in ship shape so that this will not happen AND there will be fewer cars per day going through town. I understand your concern about the loss of Port jobs. Well, we believe that farm jobs are better. These are FAMILY wage jobs and frankly...just...better OK!
