Letter From NJ Congressman Rush Holt On Deepwater Horizon and Atlantic Drilling


Weeks ago I emailed my congressman, Rush Holt, a Democrat representing New Jersey's 12th District, to thank him for his opposition to President Obama's proposed expansion of oil drilling in the Atlantic (since suspended). Also onboard were Democrats Frank Pallone, who's district includes many shore communities in Monmouth County, and both of our Senators, Frank Lautenberg and Bob Menendez. I suggested at the time that all New Jersey legislators regardless of political affiliation should oppose expansion of oil drilling off of our coast; the disaster in the Gulf should have opened eyes....if it did not, those eyes are either blind or not worthy of one's vote.


Congressman Holt was kind enough to send me an old fashioned "snail mail" response to my email, which I received yesterday. He is one of the good ones, ladies and gents.

Below, is the letter (minus my home address and my real name; that's right, "Hugh Jee" is an acronymn).

My thanks to Congressman Holt for his thoughtful and personal response.
