Officials missing at documentary  

Credit:  The Observer, www.observertoday.com 3 October 2011 ~~

It is unfortunate that members of the Westfield town and village boards, all but one member of the planning boards, and the town attorney chose to not attend the showing of Laura Israel’s award-winning, and balanced film on wind turbines in a small community in New York state. Choosing to attend were more than 75 Westfieldians, members of communities surrounding Westfield and Ripley, planning board members from other communities, a mayor of one nearby town, a county legislator, and interested citizens from Pennsylvania and from as far away as California.

It is distressing when our elected officials, whose task is to serve the best interests of their constituents, listen only to the propaganda of representatives of the wind industry and reject opportunities to examine all sides of an unhealthy, environmentally damaging and potentially hazardous industrial development.
