State stomps local voice in wind farm mandate  

Credit:  Gloucester County Times, www.nj.com 1 January 2012 ~~

Concerning the Legislature’s final passage of a bill that, if signed by the governor, would allow the construction of wind-energy towers on rural land, specifically in Cumberland and Salem counties, with only minor local approval:

So, North Jersey politicians sponsor a bill specifically designed to allow 50-story-tall wind turbines in Salem and Cumberland counties. And, the local residents will not be allowed to have a say in the matter. And, most of our “representatives” at the Statehouse think that’s a very good idea.

Isn’t that special? Maybe they should just skip the pretense and admit that Salem and Cumberland counties only exist to supply power and store waste for the rest of the state.
