On Oct. 23 the towns of Lyme and Cape Vincent met BP Project Manager Richard Chandler for the very first time.

I write to thank the town and planning boards from both towns.

As a citizen who has been concerned about the unethical development of wind, this was a night to remember.

Seventeen town officials from two towns made it very clear to Mr. Chandler, Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the world that they were elected to serve the people and to be guided in their decision-making process by the health, safety and welfare of the community as proscribed by our local zoning laws.

They demonstrated the intellect, courage and conviction necessary to defend our laws and indirectly our capability to govern ourselves with home rule.

For those who missed this historic meeting, it was recorded by Steve Weed Productions at this link — http://www.steveweedproductions.com/counter/TOCV.aspx.

I am incredibly proud of each and every one of these men and women.
