For all the shouting by prowind citizens on this topic and the fact that they tried to say Urban, Brooks and Cliff should not vote on it since they lived in the district - can you reprint the 2006 letter from Darrel Aubertine to the Town Board saying he thought it was just fine for council members with leases (financial conflict of interest) should vote be allow on wind development issues!!!

So - back in 2006 Darrel thought that having a direct financial conflict of interest due to holding a lease with a wind company was just fine. Now we all know that this is a direct financial conflict of interest as defined by NYS Law.

Today - the prowind (Darrel suppported) people in District 6 (and candidates who tried to make this an election issues) claimed that the fact that Urban, Brooks and Cliff are in the district means they cannot vote on it as council members. Unlike wind lease holders, these 3 would not benefit from this district any more than any other member of the district. Still - instead of the Town council making a decision on the district - it was put up for a vote by all members.

The district members (by a very large majority) voted to form the district. This is democracy in action - directed by a legally elected and ethical board.

Thanks to the town board for moving forward with this district. Now on to other areas of the town that need water!!!!

Urban, Clif and Brooks are not getting paid by the company installing the water or the other members of the district for their work and opinions.

Aubertine's buddies were getting paid by the wind developers. I really scares me that this pro wind tribal bunch does still not understand what a government conflict of interest is.
