An email from Oakwood Hills power plant opponents might be of interest to folks. It follows:
To those that oppose the Oakwood Hills Power Plant:
We have 10 weeks to prepare for the next step in our fight to prevent the approval of the Oakwood Hills Power Plant.
Remember, there are 6 people that will make this huge decision for all of us, and they are the Trustees of Oakwood Hills.
We are working this issue on many fronts, and this email will focus on the most important one: Political Action.
The Oakwood Hills Trustees say they are unable to speak about this issue in public.
However, they still need to understand how the residents of Oakwood Hills feel about this project.
You decide how you want to communicate this message to them; some will put out signs, some will attend events in RED, and some will call/email.
Do what makes you comfortable, be polite, but DO NOT let up on the political pressure!
It has gotten us where we are today.
The elected officials in the surrounding communities can provide us with a public stance on the project.
We are aware that Cary and Prairie Grove have been approached by Northland Power and Enventure Partners, and that to some degree they are (or were) investigating the impacts of supporting the project. Were you aware of this?
We need your help!
Please help us get our public officials to tell us where they stand on this critical issue. As far as we know, Prairie Grove, Crystal Lake, and Cary are considering allowing their “gray water” to be used in support of this project’s massive water requirements. We need to know from our public officials if they are with us in the fight to ensure this project does not get built. We want public statements!!!
We’ve have received strong support from IL
- Representative David McSweeney and
- Senator Dan Duffy.
We’re looking for additional, more local, representatives to add to this list of support.
Please be on the lookout for two additional emails after this:
Why Elgin’s and Minooka’s power plants are nothing like the proposal in Oakwood Hills
To the Village of Oakwood Hills: Threats, Elections, and the open Board position
FIND YOUR ELECTED OFFICIALS AND ASK THEM FOR STATEMENTS:
1) Oakwood Hills
4) Crystal Lake:
5) McHenry County:
