To those that are opposed to the Oakwood Hills Power Plant:
It seems that our fight is over! Thank you all for your solidarity and support over the last few months. As a community we have come together, fought, and won! Take a look at the release posted to the Oakwood Hills website below.
Also, please be on the lookout for some additional information on how we plan to use the last of our donated money, and we will also send out an email to highlight those politicians who have supported us during this ordeal. We all have to work hard to support them in the coming elections! Please ensure you are registered to vote!
More to come…..
