LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Posted March 12, 2020
Considering who to vote for? Why is the Wind Farm such a big deal? Public Health, Safety and General Welfare should be first and foremost. Common Sense.
Our Board should follow recommendations from RPC and ZBA, and deny the application. The facts are in the transcripts.
Wind Energy is not the only voting issue. Candidates seeking re-election just aren't interested in talking about it. Incumbent candidates did not find time to attend hearings for more than one hour, if that. These candidates say they're listening. Not to testimony.
Oddly, we have a bipartisan group of incumbent Candidates seeking reelection that are uniting to maintain the 'Old Guard.’ Is this a ‘Status Quo’ or a ‘Quid Pro Quo.’
The Incumbents are the only ones saying it’s ‘One Issue.’ It's one issue they don't want to talk about. They didn't attend ZBA hearings. They've never presented us with any 'economic development presentation' of any kind, like here's the budget, here's our 2% solution, and it goes down from there.
We’re stuck and going lower. So let’s trash the place.
All County residents should matter. Fair and equal treatment regarding zoning implies if we don’t follow the rules now, then don’t ask anyone else to.
Leadership requires vision. Should that include Shadow Flicker? Does our Comprehensive Plan advise us to create excessive rural noise to cause loss of property value? Is the vision for future employment One Job per 1,000 acres?
Rural Character is priceless.
We need new leadership.
