LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Posted November 26, 2019

 

Dear Editor:

 

I am writing to voice my support for the Alta Farms wind project here in DeWitt county.
I am a resident here and I believe this is a tremendous opportunity we should not 
pass up! 

 

I have attended many of the board meetings and have heard the arguments 
against this project.  That is just what they are, disagreements.  For every fact that says 
these are horrible devices riddled with danger, you can find the opposite argument
based in science. 

 

We could go on and on in this way, so it comes down to opinions
really.  I would like to plead to everyone’s common sense.  It is good sense to offer 
more jobs here, no matter the timeline.  It is good sense to secure income for our 
schools.  It is good sense to be good stewards of the earth.  The heart of the Midwest, 
that beautiful earth. 

 

Adding another resource to harvest here can only strengthen 
the generations of family farms.  It is good sense to what is in the best interest 
for the greater good, not a small percentage of people who oppose growth and 
progress.  Let’s be sensible and take care of our county. 


Sincerely, 
Brigitte Lamar

Clinton, IL
