Dear Scott,

I would like to meet with you, Karen St. Hilaire, the County Administrator and Jonathan Putney, Chair of the St. Lawrence County Legislature.  I would like to meet with the above named government officials for the purpose of discussing the use of scientific knowledge to prevent cancer.  This subject is of great importance to the people of St. Lawrence County and Akwesasne.  Thus far there has not been any significant action by St. Lawrence County government to prevent cancer.  The county government must begin to take a role in cancer prevention that uses scientific knowledge on the subject of chemical exposure cancer causation.  Failing to use this knowledge is causing much suffering and death.  This failure results from fear that widespread awareness of chemical exposure cancer risk will cause losses to the dairy industry.  This fear should not dictate inaction on cancer prevention.  St. Lawrence County government must rise above the inaction of fear and do what is best for public health.

Thank you for all of your good efforts to move forward with cancer prevention in St. Lawrence County.

joyous in Nature,

Donald L. Hassig
