Return Kelly to House seat|
Poughkeepsie Journal (NY) Editorial October 27, 2004
When U.S. Rep. Sue Kelly heard about a Hopewell Junction neighborhood with contaminated air and water, she fought hard and effectively to get it declared a federal Superfund site. For this kind of dedicated service to her constituents, they should return her to Congress.
Chemicals allegedly dumped by a local business in the mid-1970s are apparently behind the trichloroethylene, or TCE, pollution. Now, some 37 water wells and the air in 17 homes are being filtered under the supervision of the Environmental Protection Agency.
And in large measure, thanks to Kelly's efforts, federal Superfund money should soon be allocated for remediating the pollution and providing a permanent public water source.
