SUPERIOR – Following the actions taken by the Superior Town Council over the past month, a group of concerned and outraged business owners and residents gathered to create the Superior Copper Alliance. The Alliance is a grassroots organization that has organized to support local economic and community development efforts and hold local elected officials accountable.

The Superior Copper Alliance is chaired by Bill Vogler and the treasurer is Aja DeZeeuw.

Following the recent reversal of the Superior Town Council’s support for the Resolution Copper project on March 13, the group rallied “to ensure the voices of Superior residents were heard.”

The Superior Copper Alliance was instrumental in informing the community to send letters and make phone calls of support to Representatives Gosar and Kirkpatrick and also helped to gather over 400 signatures on a petitions which stated support for the mine project and spoke against the actions of the town council.

The Alliance has also taken out recall petitions against Councilmember Soyla “Kiki” Peralta on the grounds of maleficence and multiple violations of the open meeting law. As of Thursday evening the group had collected over 120 signatures to recall Peralta. Only 120 signatures are needed, however the group intends to collect additional signatures to ensure the recall is valid.

For more information on the Superior Copper Alliance, visit them on Facebook or email the group at superiorcopperalliance@gmail.com.
