In reading the article concerning Mr. Findleton’s attempt to re-open the Snows Quarry, I realized the dishonesty of Mr. Findleton to be most glaring.
In the article, he accused the officer from Air Quality Management District of threatening his operation if he wouldn’t cooperate with their requirements. In a sense, he called her a liar. Yet, his own lie was revealed in the accompanying photo of him.
He states, concerning diesel emissions permits, that his operation only uses electricity. But in the photo, Mr. Findleton is standing in front of a diesel-powered excavator. Besides, he would need a power plant, diesel powered, to operate any heavy equipment on electricity capable of operating a quarry.
His credibility about the AQMD is worthless in his gripes about wanting to operate his quarry. Look over your shoulder, sir, before you complain. You are your own worst enemy. Give up.
