I read with great concern the report in your newspaper this morning about the plans of Holbrook Manufacturing Company to build a factory in this city. The project has received strong support from the city council, based on their belief that Holbrook will bring a significant number of jobs to our area and boost the local economy. Apparently, they are blind to the reality, Holbrook is well known for its innovative manufacturing methods, which are largely automated. because of this, very little manual labour is required. Holbrook's system generally require highly skilled technicians, who would likely come here from other places to work at the factory. there will be few. if any, jobs for local citizens. What do we get in return for this ? a large, unsightly building that will require the destruction of natural areas and throw pollution into our air and water. The city council must approve Holbrook's project before they begin construction of the factory. Holbrook's board of directors, eager to break ground on the project as early as next month, have urged the city council to move forward with their vote, and it will take place tomorrow night rather than two weeks from now, as originally planned. This gives even less time for council members to develop an informed opinion. I strongly urged them not to bow to the pressure of holbrook and to vote against the proposed project.
