18700 SE Mill Plain Blvd. Vancouver, WA 98683
(This is not where the April 12th Hearing was held.)
From Vancouver’s Don Steinke:
“This will be the first day of a five-week process where legal teams from both sides present evidence and expert testimony is cross examined.
We’d like signs outside quoting resolutions of concern or opposition from various cities and a full house inside on the first and last days in Vancouver, and one day in Olympia.
We don’t want to make the EFSEC staff feel like they are walking through a gauntlet as they arrive. They view us in a positive manner.
EFSEC’s trial-like hearing will begin and end in Vancouver, with different parties presenting detailed evidence about why the Council should approve or deny the project. Although the general public is not allowed to speak, our presence will help to convey the depth of opposition to the Tesoro Savage proposal in Vancouver.
On the first day of the hearing, let’s give EFSEC a warm welcome and rally outside the hearing. The hearing room can hold roughly 100 members of the public – let’s make sure it’s packed!”
