Mark Your Calendars to Save the Santa Ritas

Posted By on Tue, Nov 28, 2006 at 10:42 AM

If all goes according to plan, the County Board of Supervisors next week—on Tuesday, Dec. 5—will vote again on a motion from Supervisor Ray Carroll to oppose a proposed mine for the Santa Rita Mountains.

The Republican supervisor has been the sole voter for such resolutions in the past. The other county supes are being total wusses and are saying there's nothing they can do, that this mining company—with the support of legendary land speculator Don Diamond's family—has the right to rape the environment with an open pit mine.

The meeting's slated for 9 a.m. next Tuesday, Dec. 5. Go. Speak out. If you can't go, call your supervisor and tell them to quit being such idiots (unless you're in Sugar Ray's district; if you are, call him and say thanks).

UPDATE: According to Patrick Cavanaugh, in Supervisor Ann Day's office, the Rosemont mine item has been continued until Dec. 12. An extra week to save the Santa Ritas!
