Majority favors Rocketdyne plan



I am writing in response to the article attempting to make the case that the Rocketdyne cleanup agreement is under scrutiny. I am dumbfounded that The Acorn would use comments from two individuals, one of whom used to work on the Rocketdyne site, and write a demonstrably misleading headline. Over 1,700 people wrote to the state supporting the cleanup. Only […]
