Yesterday, Jackie Green put out a press release that we like:
Louisville, Ky. — Jackie Green responds to today’s news that the Kentucky Economic Development has offered $7 million in incentives to an Australian company to build a coal-drying plant in Louisville, and that the EPA is being pressed to cut coal ash water pollution from Louisville’s Mill Creek power plant.
“Rather than perpetuate contaminates in our water, mountain top removal and sending Louisville dollars out of our local economy, Louisville needs to attract manufacturers of solar panels to Louisville (creating local jobs), install those panels on our roofs (creating more jobs) and keep Louisville energy dollars in Louisville. Let’s find a greener use of the $7 million.”
Where are the other two mayoral candidates on this front?
