LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Posted March 15, 2020
I am a DeWitt Co. resident writing to voice my, and my family's support regarding the proposed special use permit for wind energy here. There are so many reasons this concept makes sense.
This project is in jeopardy due to a group of residents in opposition. They have used fear as a basis for their platform, among other arguments including the unsightliness of the towers. I would like to remind residents of all the benefits to this project.
Some of the biggest being revenue for the county, money for the school district, decreasing the dependence on nuclear power and shifting to a greener energy. With the upcoming election in mind, there are some forward thinking candidates running for county office.
Please vote for Jay Wickenhauser, Cole Ritter, and David Newberg in each appropriate district.
Let’s utilize our common sense and support the future.
