Note: A copy of the September email sent to members of the Harrisburg NAACP Environmental Committee. Edited for brevity.
I did read the article that <Committee Member> sent on behalf of <General Member>. I'm interested in the state's current status with the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative under partisan opposition. Whoever fills the vacancies will be pivotal in the state's fight against human-induced climate change, and what I think will be,,, municipalities privatizing public utilities during the COVID recovery.
As a follow-up to last month's general meeting, I sent the following email to the fire department today:
<Redacted> and the Bureau of Fire:
My name is Jubalyn, and I'm part of the Environmental Committee for the Harrisburg NAACP.
A couple of branch members have expressed concern for the potential hazard of firecrackers popped by youth alongside or nearby their homes. Is it feasible for the Bureau to pilot a program for kids and kids-at-heart to pop... firecrackers on [predetermined] days in designated locations during warm-weather months?
Secondly, the focus of my term as... Committee chair is non-arson residential fires in the city. For informational purposes, would you tell me the number of documented residential fires (particularly, non-arson) ... over the last three years?
[Due to] inquiries from residents, the president requested in [tonight's] executive meeting that I find out the process for tenants to file legitimate complaints against their landlords. I have yet to give up on the Greater Harrisburg United Tenants Association, [and] I emailed them the following message two days ago:
I'd like to volunteer for the helpline one or two days each month. I also left a voicemail at XXX-XXX-XXXX this afternoon. Please indicate your interest (or not) within two weeks (Oct. 5) so I can accommodate my schedule.
As always, your thoughts are welcome and appreciated.
Chair | Environmental Committee
