What the proposed pipeline fuss is about,
Read my neighbor's pleas,
And help if you can.
Hi Neighbors, If you have been following the saga of the Vermont Gas pipeline, you may have heard that coming up next month is the technical hearing before the Vermont Public Service Board in Montpelier. The Board will decide whether or not to revoke or amend the certificate of public good they granted the project back in December of 2013. My husband Nate and I have been fighting within the 248 process for more than two years, and so we know enough to know that in June we really have a chance to convince the Board that this project does not make sense for Vermont. Environmentally, economically, and morally, it’s all wrong for this state and we believe that expert witnesses can demonstrate that to the Board in June. But now we need legal representation to do our argument justice — and that costs money. We have never asked for money before. This campaign, which has become state-wide, has been powered by amazingly energetic and talented volunteers for over two years. But now we need money to put this boondoggle of a project behind us once and for all. Please go to http://justpowervt.org/donate/ and make a donation to the campaign. You’ll see more info there, a couple of videos, and even perks to thank you for your donations. Go to the site today — we have a case to win! Please also promote this campaign to your friends and contacts inside and outside of Vermont. It’s a showdown with the fossil fuel industry, and the reverberations if we win will be huge for other communities around the country. Small state; big implications. Thank you for helping to fight for a Vermont that is truly green! Thank you! Jane Palmer
Thank you, neighbors!
Our lives in a fragile balance.
