Maryland Senate President Mike Miller eloquently made the case for why a clean, healthy environment and a vibrant, profitable farming industry are but two sides of the same coin [“Cleaning the bay and protecting the farming community,” Maryland Independent, Feb. 20].

We simply cannot have one without the other.

On behalf of the 200,000 members and supporters of the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, we commend President Miller for getting the message out through the Maryland Independent, and also for his ongoing leadership in support of the ideals that we and our farm colleagues hold so dear.

Bravo and thank you, President Miller.

Alison Prost and William C. Baker, Annapolis
