YOUR COMMENTS NEEDED STILL! Tell the Public Service Commission of WV (PSC) that you still don't want Longview.
Please send comments to the PSC.
WRITE A LETTER, MAKE A PHONE CALL, AND SEND AN E MAIL
Start with your local newspaper, the Mon County Commission, and the Mon County Development Authority. If you do not live in Monongalia County, call or write to your county commission as well. Work your way up from there. Mail to U.S Senators and Representatives in Washington is slow, so please consider writing to their state/local offices or faxing your letter to Washington.
Here are a few tips on writing effective letters to public officials (from the League of Women Voters Guide to Government Officials):
WEST VIRGINIA OFFICIALS
|Commissioners||Phone Number||Term Ends|
Ask that a copy of your message or letter be placed in the Longview file so that it will be in the public record.
The following information was obtained from the Development Authorityís web site http://www.co.monongalia.wv.us/mcda.html (some of it is dated, for example, Jim Gaston replaced one of the following members, but which one?):
|Don Reinke, Executive Director||----|
|Dan Boroff (City of Morgantown)||Ex-Officio|
|John Pyles (Mon County Commission)||Ex-Officio|
|Allen Sharpe (Star City)||Ex-Officio|
|Joseph Janco ? (Westover)||Ex-Officio|
|Bobby Lemley (Blacksville)||Ex-Officio|
|Patricia Lewis (Granville)||Ex-Officio|
The Mon County Development Authority passed the Payment in Lieu of Taxes Agreement with GenPower for Longview Power without any dissenting votes.
