As a final point, in contrast to the many attempts to caricature the organization as a group of uneducated and fearful individuals, supporters of Citizens for Responsible Development comprise the most diverse, purely grassroots political group I have ever witnessed. We are Republicans and Democrats, liberals and conservatives, men and women, young and old, white-collar and blue-collar workers, and of varying religious and educational backgrounds. The unifying factor for supporters of CRD in the midst of our diversity is that we believe wind farms placed in residential areas is an extremely bad idea, and we are disgusted by the inept and self-serving leadership of certain Tipton County officials.
I hope this answer suffices Mr. Olson’s interest in our motives.
