Dear Supporters, To address the rumor that we have decided to sell our properties to the quarry operators, we have not. We have no intention in selling our properties to anyone. The Johnson's
Town board members Radermacher and Cusick who voted the quarry in were voted OUT on April 7, 2014. Save Albion! Vote out Andrews, Hudson, & Robert Venske too!
STOP THE DESTRUCTION OF ALBION!
