Dear Mr. Doran: 

Thank you for sending me a copy of your letter to Mr. Leggett about Nick Maravell’s farm.  I agree with you that the farm should be preserved, and I have been working with Nick for several months trying to do that.  I also agree that the process by which the decision was made seems disturbing. 

Soccer fields are a lot more common than farms in our part of the county, and a certified organic farm is rare indeed. 

Nick has helped me in the past on state issues relating to pesticides and organic farming.    He worked for years getting bring the farm up the standards needed to be certified organic.  It would be a shame to lose it, for him and for the county

Thank again for writing.  Please do not hesitate to contact me whenever I can be of assistance.
