Elected officials should step up against wind farms  

Credit:  St. Joseph News-Press | Dec. 20, 2019 | www.newspressnow.com ~~

Wind turbines are destroying the serenity of our countryside. People no longer enjoy DeKalb County as it once was. Some property owners there have 10 wind turbines on their property, which amounts to a lucrative annual income.

Buchanan County residents are now facing what DeKalb residents faced. And they lost. So will Buchannan County. And we in Clinton county are next.

I think Buchanan county residents soon will be looking at wind turbines.

The Buchanan County Commission has the ultimate approval. We’re goners. With the deck stacked against us like this, how can we hope for fairness? No corporation walks into this type of situation without being sure of the outcome.

If our elected officials, at all levels, would just step up to the plate and do what’s right for the people they represent, like what we elected them to do, then wind turbines would be in someone else’s backyard and not ours.
