Letter: Barge gets vote
To the editor:
As the owner of Solar Systems of Indiana, our company and I care deeply about environmental stewardship, renewable energy, man-made global warming and its effects on the environment. That’s why I support Amanda Barge for Monroe County commissioner in District 3.
Having known Amanda personally for a number of years, I know that she is strongly in favor of reducing the carbon footprint of our county buildings. She is in favor of implementing safe, smart and energy conscious measures such as: intelligent building energy management, as well as measures such as energy efficient windows and solar panels to generate electricity. She wants more county vehicles to switch to zero emission vehicles (ZEV) electric power charged and powered by the sun and biodiesel fuels.
She wants strong erosion controls on building projects around Lake Monroe to protect our drinking water from pesticides, herbicides and chemicals.
Amanda is a true progressive who will lead Monroe County towards a future that our grandchildren will enjoy, with an environment that is cleaner and healthier than we found it.
I’m voting for Amanda Barge, and you should consider doing the same.
