EcoRI has the latest on the battle brewing over bringing a wind power installation to Tiverton. Ocean State Tea Party in Action paints East Bay Energy Consortium as a dangerous threat, and the attempt to bring wind turbines to Tiverton as a “land grab.” Read all about it.
Abel Collins of RI Sierra Club heads to the General Assembly today to advocate for RIPTA. From Abel: “After pouring my heart and soul into the effort to save RIPTA, I am thrilled to carry more than 5500 petition signatures to the House Finance Committee today in support of the Public Transit Investment Act. It’s a pivotal moment for RI transit and for me, and I am ready. Statehouse, here I come.” Thank you, Abel, and thanks to everyone that signed to preserve public transit in this state.
