Stop Dominion's Charles Station Pipeline Gas Compressor
We wish to thank everyone involved in the massive effort mustered to halt this pipeline compressor station, especially those who contributed to the Moyaone Task Force to Stop Charles Station, along with the many instrumental people at Mount Vernon, who helped turn the tide.
We met with many politicians, but these are the standouts; people we felt listened carefully and helped us in whatever way they could:
• Chris Van Hollen, US Senator for Maryland and Joan Kleinman, State Director for Senator Van Hollen
• Mac Middleton, Maryland State Senator for District 28
• Mike Miller, President of the Maryland State Senate and State Senator for District 27
• Kris Valderrama, Maryland State Delegate for District 26 and Carol Colbeth, Legislative Aide for Delegate Valderrama.
• Susie Proctor, Maryland State Delegate for District 27A
• Jeannie Haddaway-Riccio, Deputy Chief of Staff for Governor Larry Hogan
• Ben Grumbles, Secretary of Maryland Department of the Environment
• Peter Murphy, President of the Charles County Board of Commissioners
Many organizations have been supportive in this effort, including: AMP Creeks Council, Accokeek Foundation, Alice Ferguson Foundation, Charles County Conservancy, Chesapeake Conservancy, Environmental Integrity Project, 1000 Friends of Maryland, Greater Accokeek Civic Association, Maryland Chapter of the Sierra Club, Mount Vernon Ladies Association, National Trust for Historic Preservation, Potomac Riverkeepers, Preservation Maryland, and Smarter Growth Alliance for Charles County.
Throughout this process we have discovered that it really does “take a village”. Those of you who wrote, phoned or emailed lawmakers regarding this issue deserve our deepest gratitude. You amplified our message and caused our representatives to listen to us. This is truly your victory!
