Letter to the Editor on Senator Chapin Rose's Stance on Dewitt County Wind Farms


Posted February 8, 2020


Dear Editor:


Recently Senator Chapin Rose came out against wind energy by making some very negative comments. The question is why did Senator Rose wait until now to come out against the wind industry when we are in the midst of public hearings trying to get Zoning Board approval for a Special Use Permit for the Alta II Wind Farm project? 


All of the DeWitt County Wind Farm supporters are very disappointed in the negative comments that he made in January. His comments could not have come at a worse time.  It seems to me that he was given a lot of misinformation and he used that misinformation to form the comments that he made in January.  Where did he get this information? 


It is very apparent that the misinformation came from the opposition side; and I am fairly confident that it came from a DeWitt County Board member.  Senator Rose has not reached out to any of the supporters of the Alta II Wind Farm project in DeWitt County that I have talked to. 


Why is that? Ever since he made the comments in opposition of the wind industry, he has been dodging our attempts to contact him.  Senator Rose represents all of us in DeWitt County and it is disappointing that he won't give us the time of day. 


We would love for Senator Rose to come before our DeWitt County Wind Farm Supporters Group to present his official position on wind energy.
