> On Friday, July 13th over 200 citizens took part in a peaceful
> rally on the Vernon County Court House lawn to show their support
> for a large, animal confinement operation moratorium! As you may
> already know, the Vernon County Board of Supervisors will make
> their final vote on the moratorium at the August 7th full County
> Board meeting. Before County Supervisors vote on such an important
> local ordinance, they will have one last public opportunity to hear
> from the concerned citizens who live, work, and play in Vernon
> County. This opportunity comes in the form of a Public Hearing,
> which is scheduled for Monday, July 30th at 7:00 p.m. The Public
> Hearing will be held at the Western Technical College on Main
> Street in Downtown Viroqua. Everyone is welcome to attend.
> The previous rally that was held on July 13th was a huge success
> and has gathered the attention of surrounding communities and
> counties. Our State Legislature in Madison has heard our calls of
> concern. We have been diligently working every day to inform our
> local representatives that their are documented air and water
> quality risks associated with large, animal confinement
> operations. We NEED your support once again at the Public Hearing
> on Monday, July 30th.
> We are organizing a rally in the parking lot of the Western
> Technical College (WTC) in Viroqua at 6:00 p.m. So, put on your
> favorite green t-shirt and head on down to the WTC to show your
> support! We ask that you join us at 6:00 p.m. because word is
> out...those in opposition of the moratorium and in favor of large,
> animal confinement operations will cease their silence and make
> their way to the Public Hearing by means of a large tractor
> brigade. Yes, it has come down to this.
> Please join us, we need your support. The rally will last from
> 6:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. Those of you who can't stay for the
> meeting, your presence at the rally will be much appreciated.
> Bring you family and friends. Spread the word. Feel free to pass
> this email on to at least five people you know will be interested.
> Thank you again for all of your efforts!
