At a school board meeting Tuesday the Leon County School Board mentioned their concern about a proposed biomass plant near schools. However, the school board says it will not take an official position
on it.

Officials want to leave the decision making up to the City of Tallahassee and they trust the city will do what's right. One school board member, Maggie Lewis Butler, says she will be speaking out against the plant on behalf of children and education.

Maggie Lewis-Butler, a Leon County School Board member said, "I think the focus on our children is definitely important because it's the health, the safety, and well-being of our children."

On January 28th, there will be public hearing on the proposed Biomass Plant at the Tallahassee City Chambers.

    Maggie Lewis Butler gets the gold star! Finally, another official willing to take the right stand against the bioMESS. Seems to me the school board should try to protect the school CHILDREN. The School Board surely shouldn't trust Mayor Marks (ties to powerplant construction companies?),or Alan Katz (who's lawfirm has done work for BG&E)(and both are close friends with the Wetherells) to do the "right thing". They are just tooo chummy with TK and Ginger, and have other "conflicts" besides. FSU Trustees need to reel TK in, stop Chris Teaf from smearing FSU's name by double dipping as a consultant to BG&E while supposedly working for FSU as a toxicologist. Only one or the other,but not both, should be allowed. This whole bioMESS thing stinks!
