A letter from Hurley Law Firm, P. C.
May 17, 2013
Dear JCT Group Members:
Our law firm has been retained by an association of Jefferson County Tomorrow group members to provide legal representation regarding the planned intermodal project. Our firm has also been asked to provide representation and consultation regarding various issues that are pending before the Jefferson County Commission, including funding issues related to EDOC and the Jefferson County Chamber of Commerce.
We are honored to have the opportunity to work with members of your group. We sincerely look forward to having the opportunity to make a difference in the future of Jefferson County.
Many of you are familiar with the recent victory experienced by the membership of the organization known as “Save Our Farms and Homes,” in the Kansas and Talbott communities. Those communities faced the specter of a proposed megasite. As a result of a united, organized, and determined effort, the residents in those communities have prevailed over an ill-conceived plan that would have taken their farms and homes from them. This outcome can serve as an encouragement to the membership of Jefferson County Tomorrow. This battle can be won.
There will be a meeting next Thursday night, May 23, at 6:30 p.m., at the New Market Elementary School. Anyone and everyone that is interested in helping and supporting the Jefferson County Tomorrow effort is encouraged to attend. At that meeting, we will discuss both our short-term and long-term goals. We will “re-organize” JCT and provide the members of this organization (and all of its friends) with information regarding how you can help in this effort.
We will also discuss the financial needs that will exist in proceeding with this battle. There will be no “dues” or required membership fees. However, we will provide information as to the financial needs of the organization and how anyone who is able to do so can help as we move forward.
There are crucial events that will be occurring in the next few weeks. In particular, Jefferson County Commission will be considering funding requests during the June 2013 budget process that will be of great importance. It is urgent that we meet, organize, plan, and begin our efforts now.
I will look forward to seeing you next Thursday night, May 23.
With kindest regards, I am
D. Scott Hurley
