Wind energy reform exemplifies dishonest politics  

Credit:  The Herald News, www.heraldnews.com/ 4 August 2010 ~~

Why do we want the Wind Energy Siting Reform Act? This act I believe was given part of its name “Reform Act” to confuse the voters of Massachusetts. This act does the opposite – it takes your town’s zoning away. This act sites commercial wind turbines as tall as 40-story buildings in your backyard. An individual resident can’t afford a Supreme Judicial Court appeal under the “Reform Act.”

The country has evidently arrived at a point in its legal culture where no negative consequences seem to exist for making false or misleading claims to sell wind energy and take your property rights. Should the people who value intellectual honesty be fleeced by such mendacity, even from their government?

Plymouth’s Terry Murray, the Plymouth area’s state senator and president of the Massachusetts Senate, recently started a re-election bid to continue her work representing parts of Plymouth County and the entire Plymouth and Barnstable district in the Massachusetts Senate. Do the voters of the Barnstable Senate district want the Wind Energy Siting Reform Act? Have the voters of Massachusetts been educated about the negative impacts of this act?
