This morning’s article in The State on the Pinewood landfill and the risk of hazardous waste leaking into Lake Marion reminds us all of the importance of strong leadership to protect our drinking water and our natural areas. We are troubled by the conflicting reports about DHEC and oversight at the landfill. Governor Haley’s silence is notable.
A green governor would stand up to out-of-state polluters, and guard against the waste that would poison our lakes.
I urge you to keep that in mind as you head to the polls next Tuesday.
