This is a question that gets me riled. I know it’s a question generated out of concern sometimes, curiosity other times but it sounds like judgement to me. My listening hears “c’mon it can’t be that bad? Suck it up, take one for the team”. There is often such disbelief among the questioners that the leadership of Falmouth could make such a colossal mistake. Surely living under a wind turbine and sleeping 4 out of 7 nights a week can’t be that bad? Tax payers generally want to believe their tax dollars are in safe capable hands. As citizens we want to believe the people we elect have our backs when it comes to big decisions that effect our peaceful enjoyment of our homes. I get it! I get that if you who ask “is it really that bad?” and you believe me and my neighbors it means you have to take a look at Falmouth’s powers that be. You have to question authority and your belief in the folks we elected would be in question.
I ask you,really? I mean really? After the high school debacle… Who was checking the checker there? And need I bring up sewer issue? Heavens, what about water quality or the dump? Recently a woman I work with called the dump and asked how much it cost to dump some household items…the man on the phone said “take it to Bourne, it’s free.”. Now there is a statement! Even paid town employees see the folly of town management.
Yet with all these management faux paus tax payers still pull the wool over their eyes. Still we who live under the wind turbines are asked to hush up about the hell we are in…to get over it…to not rock the political boat.
Is it really that bad? It’s sleeping in the basement bad.
Is it really that bad? It’s not wanting to come home bad.
Is it really that bad? It’s not able to use the decks or garden bad.
Is it really that bad? It’s head aches daily bad.
Is it really that bad? It’s dead bats on our deck bad.
Is it really that bad? It’s lost property value bad.
This wind turbine boat is worth rocking Because if we don’t then what will Falmouth’s town management team do next with our town taxes? What sneaky loop hole will be found to hurt your neighborhood? We need to Rock this boat. We aren’t anti wind but pro-neighborhood.
We are the “collateral damage” of greed gone bad. Maybe our boat rocking will save you from having to answer the question, IS IT REALLY THAT BAD?
