LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Posted October 30, 2018

 

Dear Editor:

 

It’s that time of year when election mailings are plentiful, along those lines I’m writing to clarify the position of Better Government for DeWitt County in regards to the recent direct mailings, letters, and advertisement in the local paper for the County Board races in District B and District D. 

 

In all of these ads the Better Government for DeWitt County logo was used in conjunction with a pro wind farm logo.  Let me be clear that Better Government has NO position on a potential Industrial Wind Facility and has committed to remain neutral on the issue.


The use of the Better Government logo by these County Board candidates was not only unauthorized but also very misleading to the voters that received the ad. 

 

ONCE AGAIN LET ME REITERATE THAT BETTER GOVERNMENT FOR DEWITT COUNTY HAS NO POSITION IN REGARDS TO A POTENTIAL INDUSTRIAL WIND FACILITY. 


Best Regards,
Tom Hieronymus
President- Better Government for DeWitt County
