Carol Overland, who has been fighting the legal fight against unneeded transmission for many years, tells CFRA what the people REALLY think:
I'm disturbed to see that you're regarding Lu Nelsen and Center for Rural Affairs as a primary source. Center for Rural Affairs is not an intervenor in this project. Center for Rural Affairs is a paid transmission advocate, through the RE-AMP program, it is paid to to promote transmission.
A CfRA Director also sits on the RE-AMP Steering Committee. It's unfortunate that these facts are not included in your article -- this interest should be disclosed, because they are neither objective nor representing public interests or farmer interests. If their paid advocacy was not disclosed to you, that's an even more significant problem.
CFRA does not represent the people, although they are being paid well to pretend that they do. Tell them they don't represent you!
