I sent this note today to Hampton DELLINGER, one of the candidates for Lieutenant Governor of North Carolina in next year's elections:
"This news is really discouraging, especially after seeing so many trees recently cut around us in Southern Village.http://www.newsobserver.com/news/story/820340.html
You should consider - if you have not already - a campaign pledge to halt the decline in North Carolina trees. In other words, take the position that under your watch, you will work -- i.e., do all that you can from the bully pulpit you will have as Lt Gov - to retain and expand the total number of trees in the state. Surely there must be measures of this and I believe that this is the sort of bold initiative that GORE talked about in Oslo today.
If you choose not to do so, I'll be real interested in knowing why."
