County legislators urged to take a stance on Lighthouse Wind

Posted 10 December 2015 at 12:00 am


I commend and applaud Sen. Ortt for taking a stance on the Lighthouse Wind project. It is encouraging to see an elected official take a stance on an issue that has been so divisive in our community and surrounding communities.

With this being said, elected officials are put in their positions to lead and I am calling on our Orleans County legislators to do what we all know they are capable of doingbeing leaders and taking a stance on the issue.

Whether it is in support or opposition of the project, I would like to see our legislators publicly state their positions. Their stances do not have to align with my beliefs on the issue. It will be satisfying to simply have them speak out and take a stance.

Legislators, if you’re reading this, I urge you to do what Sen. Ortt did and take a stance. As elected officials, we are looking to you, our leaders, to take a stance.
