Dear Nampa Citizens,
while other cities slash police and fire budgets, we will keep every sworn officer and every firefighter on the job. Instead of slashing we will add new community police officers to help keep our neighborhoods safe. We will maintain a balanced budget with no layoffs and no tax increases.We will do this by attracting new business to Nampa under my leadership. It’s time that we showed Idahoan’s that Nampa is a force to be reckoned with. Only positive, confident, and highly motivated people will be appointed to help me in these tasks. People with great compassion for all of it’s citizens. I realize that we won’t change everything overnight but the groundwork will be laid under a Robinson administration. This is my promise to you!
Vote For Melissa Sue Robinson, For Mayor (2009) For Nampa, For Progress, For the Future of Our Citizens, and For Diversity!
About Emission Testing and Jobs for Nampa
One in a new generation of computer climate models that include the effects of Earth’s carbon cycle indicates there are limits to the planet’s ability to absorb increased emissions of carbon dioxide.
If current production of carbon from fossil fuels continues unabated, by the end of the century the land and oceans will be less able to take up carbon than they are today, a computer model indicates.
“If we maintain our current course of fossil fuel emissions or accelerate our emissions, the land and oceans will not be able to slow the rise of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere the way they’re doing now,” said Inez Y. Fung at the University of California, Berkeley, who is director of the Berkeley Atmospheric Sciences Center, co-director of the new Berkeley Institute of the Environment, and professor of earth and planetary science and of environmental science, policy and management. “It’s all about rates. If the rate of fossil fuel emissions is too high, the carbon storage capacity of the land and oceans decreases and climate warming accelerates.”
Fung is lead author of a paper describing the climate model results that appears this week in the Early Online Edition of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS). Fung was a member of the National Academy of Sciences panel on global climate change that issued a major report for President Bush in 2001 claiming, for the first time, that global warming exists and that humans are contributing to it.
Citizens of Nampa, not only is my point on this subject an argument for emissions testing, but also an argument on working to bring alternative fuel and energy manufacturing to Nampa, just like the State of Michigan, where I am originally from, is presently doing. As your Mayor (when elected), I promise I will not only work to bring those jobs to Nampa, but I will also travel to Japan and Europe (on my own money) and work to convince foreign manufacturers to build plants in Nampa by selling our low tax rate, good business laws, cheaper living expences,and good living climate to them. I have over 30 years of sales experience, a great product (Nampa with its valuable workers), and I will close that deal for you when elected.
Nevertheless, Panter said the main employment issue in Canyon County in June was a failure of jobs to materialize at a time of year when there is typically solid job growth….Found in recent addition of Idaho Press Tribune…… Doesn’t that help support my idea that change is needed here?
