Manny Diaz

The various negative effects of rock mining blasting and the sense of frustration and helplessness felt by our constituents have reached a fever pitch, and using executive authority to address the issue cannot wait any longer. I want to make myself completely available and helpful to you in addressing this issue.

Our concerns with the rock mining have been the blasting impact, water safety and accountability. Our legislation and the continued effort of us working together will make sure we address those concerns.

Join this movement and help stop the effects of rock mining blasting.

Our goal is to:

  • Lower blasting intensity
  • Push blasting zones away from residential areas
  • Institute a fund to repay blasting damages
  • Ensure transparency on blasting levels and schedules
