The Bellingham Herald reported [in “Anti-coal activists, coal port supporters clash in Tri-Cities” on June 3]: “Millennium organized employees and other supporters to tout the economic benefits of the $680 million privately-funded project.”
So, not only has it recently been reported that Millennium Bulk Terminals – Longview, LLC (MBTL) had a number of its employees attend and testify at the Draft EIS hearings
for the Millennium Bulk Terminals Longview proposal, its company’s employees have also written letters to the editor in newspapers, touting the supposed benefits of the project. Sometimes in their employees’ letters the employee discloses that they work for MBTL, and sometimes they do not.
The letters to the editor (from 2012 and 2013) displayed in the attached screenshot photos are from MBTL employees, or from people who own companies that sell products or services to MBTL.
I also attached screenshot photos and a photo of a LinkedIn page for MBTL employees who wrote letters to the editor, but did not disclose that they work for MBTL.
Please don’t forget, you can still submit comments on the Draft EIS.
