Dear Editor: We read the article regarding Chandra Brown, the Ogeechee riverkeeper, with great interest and appreciation. This article recognized an individual who deserves our thanks and highlighted a few of the many contributions that Ms. Brown has made to this county, nearby coastal counties and the state of Georgia. She will indeed be difficult to replace.
We admire Ms. Brown for taking on tough issues and truly appreciate all the hard work that she did for coastal Liberty County. She encouraged citizens to get involved in protecting our fragile coast and made us realize it takes all of us to ensure that this wonderful resource is protected for future generations. We cannot imagine Liberty County without this beautiful natural resource.
Thank you for writing this article to show appreciation for a dedicated individual who put protecting these valuable resources ahead of her personal agenda and who represented all of us in making our environment a safer and more beautiful place. We need more people like Ms. Brown who are willing to put the greater good ahead of personal agendas.
Thank you, Ms. Chandra Brown, for a job well done. We – and many others – greatly appreciate your efforts to preserve the coast and waterways of Georgia. Best wishes.
John and Pam Henderson
