letters to the editor 123Shame on State Rep. Clift Tsuji. chair of the House Agricultural committee.   For the 2nd year in a row he killed a bill (HB 2564) that would have created buffer zones around schools to protect against pesticide drift.  What kind of a person won’t protect kids from pesticide poisoning.  As a former banker, and “biotech legislator of the year,” he appears more concerned about protecting chemical company profits than protecting the common good, including children’s health and safety.  Tsuji brings shame on the entire Hilo district that he claims to represent.  Come on Hilo –stand up for the kids.  Send Tsuji packing.  Let him go back to work for the bank instead of being a tax paid mascot for Monsanto and other special corporate interests.
