“I used to be a Republican, but I don’t know what I am now,” Leverett said in Gardendale on Thursday, speaking to a group of reporters attending the Society of Environmental Journalists’ annual conference. “I’m sympathetic toward those who want to preserve a little bit of our world.”
Watch this video of a flare that threatened the residents of Gardenville in October. It’s not the first time this has happened.
