Reunion Power’s attitude has gone through a profound change since March 2006 when, at a propaganda seminar Reunion hosted, company officials repeatedly said, “There is no way that we can give you a discount on your electricity bills.”
But it seems as though every time the town government tries to pass a law Reunion doesn’t like, the company does an about-face and starts throwing money around like an ATM machine that has just been given an electronic suppository.
Trying to influence the local government isn’t the only tactic that this ethically challenged company is using: It has embarked on a vigorous lobbying campaign by visiting board members at their homes and staying after meetings are adjourned to “work” on town officials privately. It has even tried to enlist the fire department to support Reunion’s position on the proposed wind law.
It has been said that for evil to triumph, it is necessary for good men and women to do nothing. The time for doing nothing has passed. If we don’t act now and put an end to the corrupting influence of this company we are giving it our tacit consent to not only ransack the countryside but to treat the town government and all who live here as its own personal lackeys.
