Small Fortune, Really?

May 29, 2019
Emmetsburg News

To the Editor:

Let us talk about small and large fortunes. What is small versus large? How much money have you put into your home to make it your home? To us we have put our "only fortune" into our home, our life savings. So have the other plaintiffs in this case.

To us this is our right to defend our investment to live in peace without industrial development surrounding our homes.

The paper and the supervisors seem to want to focus on this expenditure alone. There are other lawsuits, other attorney fees, why are they not frontpage news?

Part of being a supervisor is protecting the residents from out-side carpetbaggers. The supervisors have acted toward their residents with pure disregard of our rights to live in peace. Over 80% of the turbine sites are non-residents. How is that constitutionally correct? In America we have the right to defend against corrupt government.

It is time for county residents to step up and vote this bunch of deaf, dumb and blind men out of office. They are not protecting our rights as residents. Step up and put your name on the ballot, before they sell the rest of the county to carpetbaggers, along with your rights.
