Johnson lone voice on EFSEC for residents  

Hurray for Patty Johnson! – our one, squelched voice for Kittitas County who seems to have a conscience and struggles to keep our homes free from the threat of a state steamroller. Her position on the EFSEC board must be an agonizing ordeal for her. Hopefully, she will hang in there.

EFSEC’s recommendation of a setback of 2,500 feet from homes is just as much of an insult as its previous recommendation. Should the governor succumb to its recommendation and approve the Kittitas Valley Wind Power Project, our lands will become uninhabitable within our own boundary lines and anything beyond our homes valueless. In essence, our property will be taken away from us and rendered useless when we step outside our doors. Nothing can be structured between our homes to our property lines and an existing tower. This is totally unacceptable and smacks of tactics with which no elected official should want to be associated.

How can the voting members of EFSEC, in any terms, sleep at night?

So, please, Gov. Gregoire, throw out EFSEC’s recommendation and deny KVWPP’s application. The site is totally inappropriate and you must know it in your heart and in all good conscience must know it will destroy the proposed site area and all that surrounds it.

Roger Binette
