Dear Editor: Regarding Alfred Doblin's September 2, 2013 column ("That giant sucking sound on Labor Day"), I wholeheartedly agree with his argument related to the need to "create good-wage industries" in New Jersey.

That is why I believe that openness, sound science, and transparency should be the underpinnings of DWQI’s process or of any regulatory process.
