Open letter to Deval Patrick
As one of the co-hosts to The Enviro Show on Valley Free Radio, WXOJ-LP in Northampton I want to take this opportunity to ask that you reconsider your stand on the proposed Cape Wind project in Nantucket Sound. As I'm sure you are aware, Nantucket Sound is a special place in the Commonwealth and held near and dear to a great many residents from all over Massachusetts. As part of the commons, it is up to all citizens of the state to protect Nantucket Sound from development that would spoil its relatively pristine character. We on The Enviro Show feel that the proposed industrial development that is Cape Wind would violate the sanctity of the Sound and endanger the wildlife that lives or passes through the area.
I am asking you to reconsider your position with regard to your support for Cape Wind and that you help the corporate backers of the project to work toward a more ecologically sound installation inland at a place that is already developed.
If you would like to read more of my concerns over Cape Wind you will find them here:
I look forward to hearing from you with regard to this matter.
