Members of StopPATH WV attended the forum. Here's the press:

"West Virginians for Reliable Power" (and that's in quotes because the coalition is mere idea that does not exist legally, physically or in reality) were represented by PR hack Bryan Brown of Brown Communications LLC of Charleston, and a couple of Allegheny Energy lobbyists.
The guest speakers were articulate and well-spoken. It's just too bad that Brown and Allegheny Energy gave them propaganda and incorrect facts to work with. The speakers became flustered and almost angry during the Q & A session and the forum was called to an early halt by Brown, when he felt his "reliability" slipping away. How does it feel to have no control over events you didn't foresee, Bryan, like maybe having an unneeded transmission line threaten your private property, your health, your basic quality of life? Didn't feel too good, did it? In fact, I believe Bryan's exact words were, "I feel like I'm being attacked!". Touche'?
