Letter to the Editor

Thanks for 16 years

Tuesday, October 23, 2018

I want to thank Paul Johnson for being a Dickinson County Supervisor for the past 16 years.

Paul was an environmental watchdog who did an outstanding job of protecting our county

from environmental and economic pollution.

Too often developers would wait for summer residents to leave for the winter then sneak

into the board of supervisors to get approval for unwise or odious projects that would enrich

the developers at great harm to the environment and much to the detriment of the quality of

life of the Iowa Great Lakes.

Paul would insist the projects be put on hold until the summer residents returned so the

summer residents could protect themselves from environmental harm.

Paul Johnson's conduct as our supervisor reflected great credit upon himself, our Great Lakes and Dickinson County.

Thank you Paul for your service to our environment and the Iowa Great Lakes
