We are concerned citizens of Marfa, Ft Davis, Alpine, Marathon, Presidio, Ft. Stockton and the Big Bend region. We firmly believe that economic development and a safe, healthy environment are not mutually exclusive. As West Texans, we are strongly independent and are very proud of our country and we feel that, given the opportunity, we can rise to any challenge; bringing, not reactionary responses, but well thought out and equitable solutions that respect the rights of all of our citizens. We believe this to be our responsibility as global citizens.
In an open democracy we encourage a meaningful dialog, whether you support or oppose the planned La Entrada al Pacifico roadway and the expected truck traffic. We also believe that it is productive to express thoughts based on fact and not conjecture. We understand that this is a highly charged emotional issue and we expect participants to refrain from name calling and behave with respect and ethical behavior in all discussions.
Please join the dialog and become a part of our collective solution.
