Here in Erie County, County Executive Kathy Dahlkemper is pushing for Lake Erie Energy Development Corp.’s huge industrial wind turbines in the Pennsylvania waters of Lake Erie and is also holding programs for designating by the U.S. Department of Commerce the Pennsylvania Lake Erie waters as a National Marine Sanctuary. Not exactly a good fit to have industrial wind turbines in a major bird migration flyway and in a National Marine Sanctuary.
Dahlkemper is on the board of directors of the wind developer, LEEDCo, which is a real conflict of interest with her duties as county executive of Erie County. It’s past time for an investigation to begin by the State Ethics Commission. For more on Lake Erie industrial wind turbine development, see www.greatlakeswindtruth.org and the Erie County report.
