A call to arms in Barnstable

Citizens of the Town of Barnstable - stop Teddy's toadies
Stop this idiotic waste of taxpayer money

By Stephen Peckham, Centerville

The Town Manager has directed the towns attorney to file sui against the CAPE WIND project in Barnstable Superior Court.

Needless to say this suit will cost the town tens of thousands of dollars... With only ONE GOAL: Stop the project from moving forward or at least delay it as long as possible with the hope that the developer will run out of money.

It has been seven years since this project was proposed and made application for approval.

COAL & OIL burning power plants normally take 1 to 2 years to permit.

This is a travesty that has been spearheaded by the COAL & OIL industry backed part time residents of Osterville, Cotuit etc who along with TED KENNEDY have decided that

THEIR VIEW...
Is more important than CLEANER AIR & WATER... TO DRINK, FISH, FARM and to ultimately consume the products that now are POLLUTED with MERCURY & SULFUR DIOXIDE etc.

THEIR VIEW...
Is more important than OUR HEALTH, the HEALTH OF OUR CHILDREN & THEIR CHILDREN'S CHILDREN.

THEIR VIEW...
Is more important... So the TOWN MANAGER & TOWN COUNCIL is spending -OUR TAX DOLLARS- that they collect from EXCISE & REAL ESTATE TAX's... To fight this project...

THEIR VIEW...

Is more important than spending this money on FIGHTING THIS PROJECT... than to pay for:

  • BUSSING OUR CHILDREN TO SCHOOL
  • MUSIC AND ART PROGRAMS FOR OUR CHILDREN
  • PHYSICAL ED FOR OUR CHILDREN
  • SPORTS PROGRAMS
  • AFTER SCHOOL CARE
  • TEACHERS & AIDS
  • BOOKS
  • ROAD REPAIRS
  • MUNICIPAL BUILDING REPAIRS
