Here is a little stunt I pulled a few years back in the op ed pages of the newspaper
Guest View: Conservation concerns ignored
By BOBBY WOLFRAM, Ventura
Over the last year, I have been trying to persuade our county supervisors to change roadside management to a more environmental, conservation-minded approach. In the process, I have been lied to or misinformed, but it doesn't end there.
In just a few days, I collected more than 500 signatures of people from all walks of life supporting a change in philosophy. Having produced the result to Supervisor Bob *******, he said that there were more than 50,000 residents in Cerro Gordo County and that most city people could care less what's going on in the country. Period.
A biologist from a well-known pheasant conservation club contacted them. He was shunned.
Employees of the county candidly question why.
I have tried to talk with Ron ******* of the County Conservation Board. However, he wouldn't discuss it. Maybe it was because I wasn't wearing a bow tie and French cuffs.
Employees of DNR also question quietly what is happening to the ditches.
Young hunters are concerned about the future of their sport, and some landowners are afraid to speak out.
Today, my friends, I boldly speak out to you.
Is it right for the elected to ignore the voices of the more than 500? If not, whose voices are Bob ****** and Jay****catering to?
Our supervisors and county engineer are blatantly breaking Iowa Codes 314.7, and in question are 317.10, 317.23, 314.22, 314.23, 314.24 and 319.13
We need to groom strong, principled leaders. They are among us in potential, and we must demand a climate in which they will flourish.
Election day is not far off. Change is needed. Please join in looking for a supervisor candidate who will make all voices heard, not just those with a special interest or big bucks.
