I have been wondering if a publiic vote has ever been heid in any of of the towns that will be affected by the wind mills. should not the residents decide the future of the area?! Not the town boards or the IDA

We have a type of government where our elected officials listen to our concerns, and vote within reason according to that. Maybe you need a lesson in politics. I am not sure why people keep thinking they have a right to vote on all the issues.
The majority of the people in Cohocton expressed support so the elected officials weighed the pros and cons and then voted with the majority.

Maybe I do need a lesson in politics. Is there a record of this majority you speak of? As in public referendum, a vote by the residents as to the future of the area. I do seem to remember somthing about by the people for the people. To me politics is nothing but about $$ in someones pocket. I have lived in the finger lakes for 30 years and Know our only industry is tourisum

Supposedly, the moratorium on wind development in the Wayland area expires next year. If you need to see the effect on a community for yourself, drive to Cohocton. New roofs, additions, business activity. Obvious positive feedback loop of incredible scope. This echoes the experiences other areas have seen that have take the risk.
Tourism? Yeah - there's a lot to see in Wayland.

I think that the prrof of the majority supporting the turbines came out when the incumbants were re-elected by a landslide. The voters elect persons whom they feel have their best interests at hart. Your argument that there was no proof of the majority is BS. When is the last time you voted on a bill congress passed? you don't, your elected reps do.
I am guessing your a bitter anti-wind person who has no better argument than the tired old "nobody voted on it" argument.
