GOP State Sen. Tom Tiffany seems to have but one constituent in his District - - an out-of-state coal mining company hell-bent to blow up and mill the Penokee Hills for low-grade iron ore.
So he's carrying the company's water to the detriment of everyone else's.
And air quality, and transportation spending, and anything else the mine owners want from the public.
See his latest giveaway - - remember, he tried but failed to close off thousands of acres of publicly-accessible forest land prior to much significant work on and near potential excavation sites - - to serve the mine owners' interests:
His bill - - call it the 'Go Ahead And Dynamite Despite The Asbestos Act' - - is not a hit at local control. It the elimination of local control in favor of the company's control, with the blessing of the state.
Late Thursday morning Update: More asbestos located on the mine site.
Tiffany must want the mine, with its potential for acid mine runoff and toxic release of cancerous asbestos fibers, to inflict maximum damage to people, the land, the water and a traditional native culture.
Can an elected official really have A Constituency of One? And a business, at that?
