Board of Health’s duty is to protect the public  

Credit:  www.southcoasttoday.com 29 March 2012 ~~

The people of Little Bay will furnish the guinea pigs for a full scale laboratory for wind carpetbaggers Sumul Shah, Jim Sweeney and Gordon Deane – while we wait and see.

Here are my questions. Was it right for selectmen to commit to a 20-year contract for turbines so close to residents without their informed consent? Was it right to do this without consulting the Board of Health? Was it wise to expose the town to this liability, whether people get sick or not?

When the experiment proves that people do get sick in Little Bay, what will you do to protect the unwilling subjects? Will you try to stop the turbines whether you are on the Board of Health or not? Or, will you stick your head in the sand, shirk your ethical duty to protect your fellow residents, and await further instructions from Brian Bowcock, Charlie Murphy and Tom Crotty, like Peter Deterra does?

News flash: It is not the job of the Board of Health to work closely with other boards. Rather, it has the solemn responsibility to provide independent checks and balances on other boards, and to protect the health, safety and well-being of residents above all.
