Livingston Co., IL. (ECWd) -
Invenergy has appealed the Livingston County Board's denial of their Special Use Permit.
In the appeal, Invenergy denies any negative impacts on real estate, claim they operate within the noise limits, and claim the Board didn't read the documents given to them.
The comedy starts on Page 8 of the below pdf, and include references that Marty Flannin changed his mind when under pressure form those who don't want it - like that somehow reverses the outcome of the votes?
Blazer kicks it up a notch on page 10. Invenergy seems to think you can't vote on anything if you belong to a certain political affiliation, operate a non-profit, attend a protest, or happen to be in the same city at the same time as any organization funded by the Koch Brothers.
Diane Benjamin's BLNNEWS.com got a mention, but they left out Ted Hartke, their most vocal opponent.
Carolyn Gerwin looks to be the one Mike Blazer blames for his problems. That's the trouble with trying to hurt more people with wind turbines. People find out and vote "no."
There will be those who stand up for what is good and right. I am surprised that Blazer did not put "Ted Hartke" in this document. InvEnergy (Blazer) dug their own grave in this case.......because of their refusal to correct terrible problems they have caused elsewhere.
Blazer also tries to blame Marty Fannin for clarifying his vote and also Gerwin for having the right position on this in the first place.
For good measure when all else fails, Blazer and Invenergy think they can win by blaming of "Tea Party" and "Koch Brothers" who have absolutely nothing to lose or gain by the Livingston County Board decision.
I'm curious as to if any people speaking in favor of Invenergy were under contract to speak in favor of these wind turbines...
