Breaking News!!!!

The following message was sent to the Cortland County Legislature in regards to the Solar Pilot Project:

Dear Mr. Heider,

“We the People”, who rightfully reside within the friendly confines of the Town of Scott, duly reject the notion of placing French owned corporate fortifications in the County of Cortland!  The premise resides with the legislative fact that America operates on a simple notion, “No taxation without representation”.  The French owned company EDF plans to violate this American system of government for the purpose of profit and control.  EDF will not pay taxes to local municipalities, upon whose domain they are imposing!  The unlawful administrators will also engage in the fine art of corruption by not allowing the citizens of local municipalities to voice their valued perspectives and initiate control measures, which will ensure the citizens maintain their quality of life without the oppressive interference of a foreign owned corporation that possesses tedious ties to a state government that has already capitulated to the demands of these outsiders!  “We the People” of Scott are a community of U.S. Veterans and avid citizens who have supported the patriotic notion of, “No taxation without representation” with our valuable service to this great nation.  “We the People” of Scott cannot support the legislation which will surrender parts of our community to an outside corporation that has no intention of demonstrating respect for the laws of local municipalities, paying taxes, or improving the lives of the citizens of Cortland County.

Town of Scott Supervisor,

Dr. Guy Ruoff
