Arriving late to the party, Melissa Moss has no idea what she's talking about

Excerpts from Melissa Moss' op-ed piece, Frac sand protesters not representative of La Crosse, interspersed with headline.

But these protesters weren’t just protesting sand mining, they were also protesting lower gas prices and countless opportunities for job creation thanks to the sand mining industry.

Many of us are thankful that gas prices are low and that jobs are coming back to the region.

Sand mining has the potential to bring hundreds of jobs to northwestern and western Wisconsin,

The facts are clear: Lower gas prices and new jobs are good for families in La Crosse. Sand mining is a win for La Crosse and a win for Wisconsin.

This will come as no surprise.  Melissa is a member of the Wisconsin chapter of the Koch Brothers-fueled Americans for Prosperity.
