Letter to the Editor: ‘The Irony of American Politics’
I remember a book titled, “The Irony of American Politics.” Perhaps an additional footnote. According to the United States Department of Agriculture, Traditions Investments, LLC – the Bos mega-dairy that was defeated by local residents – received over $39,000 in conservation subsidies from 2009-2013. So a proven polluter received nearly $40,000 from the federal government to contaminate our water, which included the destruction of a wetland. H.O.M.E.S., on the other hand, had to raise over double that to protect it.
