AS IF WE EVER HAD ANY DOUBT THAT THE TRUSTEES SUPPORT MARTIN MARIETTA, NOT ANDERSON TOWNSHIP RESIDENTS …



We had hoped that the Township would not side with Martin Marietta in the pending appeal.  In fact, on more than one occasion the township administrator assured CABOOM members and the news media that Martin Marietta was on its own in appealing Judge Ruehlman’s reversal of the Board of Zoning Appeals’ approval of Martin Marietta’s plans for a major underground mining operation.  But, the Township Trustees have filed a 35 page brief supporting Martin Marietta’s appeal!  Apparently, there’s very little trust left in the word “trustee.”



In their brief filed on May 15, the Trustees started out by saying they had “decided not to file an appeal from the trial court’s decision… and not to take a position on whether Martin Mareitta should be allowed to establish its proposed underground mine….”  They then devoted the balance of their brief by arguing aggressively for a reversal of Judge Ruehlman’s decision in favor of township residents and for reinstatement of the BZA’s 3 to 2 vote in favor of Martin Marietta.  When CABOOM leader Cathy Burger confronted the trustees at their next meeting, unmoved by Cathy’s expression of disappointment, one trustee had the nerve to respond that their brief says they are taking no position.  But, their written brief sends a clear message to the Court of Appeals that the Trustees support Martin Marietta, not the people of Anderson Township.



CABOOM urges all Anderson Township residents to write to the Trustees to express their disappointment that our tax money is being used not to protect our homes and businesses from the unwanted mine, but to actually thwart our efforts to protect our community.  Remind them that their betrayal will not be forgotten at the next township election.
