Mayor Calvin Tillman wrote a letter to US Congressman Michael Burgess asking him to reconsider his support for the Keystone XL Pipeline.
The letter addresses
- the massive land grab, “a minimum of 24,000 acres of private property that will be taken through eminent domain…”
- the overblown jobs claim that has inflated in direct proportion to opposition
- and the right to enjoy private property.
You should read it then call Congressman Burgess. A phone call has more impact than an email and it’s quick and easy. He should be in town right now for the holiday.

UPDATE: Keystone XL Tax Cut Rider: GOP’s Cudgel or Black Eye?
Bungled strategy to fast-track oil sands pipeline likely to give Obama leverage.
