Hartsville Town Board is taking some hits from a group called “Hartsville
Friends of Wind Power.” The group is urging local residents to attend the next
Hartsville town board meeting Wednesday night. In a paid political ad, the
group says “proposed wind projects…could add $500,000 or more annually to the
town coffers for the next 20 years.” Landowners, they say, also stand to
profit from leasing their land. According to the ad, “Hartsville is rich
enough. Just ask the Town Board.”The
group says you don’t have to be pro wind, just pro economy.
