I wholeheartedly thank you all for joining us on Sunday. It’s been a few hectic days of processing, but over 120 of you took the opportunity to speak up for Starved Rock! We have in the mail over 80 letters to the Governor, and we encourage you to write more! Remember, every little bit helps!
As we mentioned at our Rally on Sunday afternoon, it is NOT too late to save this park! Here are some things you can do:
1) Write Governor Pat Quinn your concerns. We have an electronic draft here, and while every letter helps, please remember a hand-written note is so much more powerful. Send your concerns to:
Gov. Pat Quinn
James R. Thompson Center
100 West Randolph
Chicago, IL 60601
2) Write Barb Lieberoff (Barb.Lieberoff@illinois.gov) your concerns of the pending National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit. Tell her how important Starved Rock is, and how you don’t want this mine. Right now IEPA is considering a general NPDES permit, when an individual one is clearly needed – if Starved Rock doesn’t count as a special condition, what does?!
