Federal representatives mute on red tide

By Staff | Aug 22, 2018

To the editor:

When will our new neighbor, Vice President Mike Pence, step up to help create a permanent solution to the red tide plague that’s ruining the island and will continue to do so until politicians stand up and fight the chemical run-offs from large cane plantations? Thus far, he and other federal representatives have been relatively mute in this subject.

One fears that this year’s disaster will become a regular event until strong action is taken.
