Re: “Day laborers being used as pro-coal placeholders for today's public hearing

And, just in case anyone is being misled into believing that the "Alliance" has a soft spot for day laborers or union workers, here´s the Board of Directors of this brand new non-profit.
Do any of these names and companies seem familiar?
John Ambler - VP Corporate Relations BNSF, president BNSF Foundation (which gives grants to school children)
Scott Moore - Chairman of the Colorado Oil and Gas Foundation
Todd O´Hair - Director of Govt. Affairs, Cloud Peak Energy
Deck Slone - SVP Arch Coal
John Thomas - SVP Legal and General Counsel, Ambre Energy
Bob Watters - SVP SSA Marine
spokesman - Lauri Hennessey, VP Edelman Public Relations
Facts are facts, folks. The Alliance is not what it is trying to get people, including journalists, to believe it is. Just ask a few questions. It´s about time.

Re: “Day laborers being used as pro-coal placeholders for today's public hearing

Dear Ms. Hennessey:
Yes, I care about the environment. Yes, I run a small business. Yes, I also VOLUNTEER umpteen hours a week to shut this dumb project down. And YES, I stood in line at one hearing.
And Lauri, aren´t you a paid PR exec from Edelman in Seattle who is probably getting all-expense paid trips to all the scoping hearing to say the same thing for two minutes -- about jobs. Oh, and aren´t you and your PR company paid by the Alliance for Northwest Jobs and Exports, which is completely supported by the following companies (below) -- all supporting the coal terminals? And running all the slick ads on tv.

Come on. Just who DO you work for. Seems like BIG COAL to me.
Just askin´.
