Dear Coalition Members:
We need your help. The Whatcom County Council recently voted to introduce its ninth consecutive, six-month Cherry Point Fossil Fuel Moratorium.
Whatcom Councilmember Kathy Kershner, who voted against introduction of the ninth Cherry Point fossil fuel moratorium, said during debate that “… the ban is bad for business, particularly as the local economy is reeling from the new coronavirus pandemic, the loss of a proposed biofuel plant and the recent announcement that the Alcoa Intalco Works aluminum smelter will close soon.”
The Whatcom County Council will vote on the Cherry Point moratorium on Tuesday, June 2nd at its 6:00 p.m. virtual Council meeting. Please see the links below for more details on how to join the zoom Council meeting, register to testify, and submit public comment. Also please see emails below to submit written comment.
In the meantime, we hope you and your families are well and healthy. Stay safe.
