CRD turbine foesnot against Chrysler
Contrary to what Anabeth Rayl wrote in her letter, the Tipton County Citizens for Responsible Development were not involved in the dispute over the waiver of a permit fee for Chrysler protested by three individual citizens, Nancy and Dan Carney and Brent Snow.
The issue was not discussed on our listserv, was not posted on our website, and no board members were present at the hearing.
The mission of the CRD is the following: “Tipton Citizens for Responsible Development, Inc. is focused on ensuring that wind development in Tipton County, Indiana, is done without harm to homeowners and supports the interests of homeowners living with existing wind farms.”
The argument presented by the Carneys and Snow was against what they believed was a violation of procedure and not against the Chrysler development. Please note the CRD board did not and does not support their position. We, the CRD and many of our supporters, are proud and grateful of the commitment Chrysler is making to our county. Our friends, our neighbors, our families and ourselves have benefited from employment with this company. Individuals who oppose turbines have differing opinions on many issues, and one should not ascribe all opinions to everyone who opposes turbines.
The CRD does not oppose night farming, hog farms or Chrysler; our only focus is on industrial wind turbines. It is unfortunate that some have been led to believe these falsehoods without speaking to anyone who is a member of CRD board. The CRD board is Jeff and Paige Hoover, Chris and Julie Rossi, Kirsten Leonard and Mark Lynn, Michelle McNabb and Imran Malik, John and Emily West, Jeff and Juanita Thomas and Eric and Beth Juliot, who are all in agreement to the content of this letter. We welcome any questions as to our motives and actions.
