Letter to Abercrombie

In response to the Water Commission nominating committee appointing a Monsanto lobbyist to sit on the Commission....

Corporate greed!! Why should a multi-national representative sit on the Water Commission for water rights of the citizens of Hawai'i??? Corporate greed!!!!

Governor Abercrombie:

I do not like Monsanto’s presence in the islands. Their GMO/GEO work is detrimental to the island’s soil and the environment. I urge you to listen to the will of the people.

1.    DO NOT appoint a Monsanto-connected person to the Water Commission
2.    DO NOT appoint a person from an organization with Monsanto connections like Alexander & Baldwin or the Farm Bureau.
3.    Farmers are experts at USING water and not managing it.
4.    We need hydrologists watershed experts and ecologists appointed to the Water Commission – not individuals with a financial stake in the water.
