Defends Killeen  

I am appalled by last week’s “Letter to the Editor” accusing Kevin Killeen of abusing his authority in the stated windmill controversy. First of all, Mr. Killeen was not representing the Board of Education at the last meeting. He attended as a Watertown resident.

If Ms. Smith would have been following the windmill issue, she would have realized that it was the Zoning Board of Appeals who abused their authority when they inappropriately approved a variance to erect a 55-foot windmill on Wheeler Farm Subdivision, based on personal opinion.

While Ms. Smith may have found Kurt Karpavich to be her new “environmentally super hero”, she ignores that the pollution created by the production and transportation of this windmill far outweighs the benefits of powering up the equivalent to a hair blow dryer. Mr. Killeen was simply trying to correct a wrong doing. As for the rest of the residents of Wheeler Farms, we all stand to protect our environment and natural surrounding, but we opt to do it in an intelligent manner.
