Hempstead Day at the Capitol

Many members of Citizens Against the Landfill in Hempstead (CALH) participated in a bus trip organized by the City of Hempstead, Mayor Michael Wolfe and Hempstead City Council, to promote our town and celebrate “Hempstead Day” at the State Capitol, Monday, March 4, 2013.

From bus sponsors to gifts for legislators, citizens came together in this common cause to highlight our town and its battle against the landfill on Hwy 6. Unofficial total was 31 personal visits to lawmakers and/or their offices, discussing the issue and sharing information packages about the detrimental effects of this proposed landfill. It was apparent that Waller County’s battle against this landfill was well known at the Capitol, but putting a face to the people who will be negatively affected was especially valuable and significant.

The determination of this group of citizens to be heard was inspirational and, if you were unable to attend this event, you were very well represented on this highly important day in Hempstead History! Great work, everyone!!
