Local jobs for the local community

EDITOR’S NOTE: The following letter to the editor was written by John Stockmeister of Attica.

As a union heavy equipment operator, I often am required to work away from my home in Attica for a month at a time.

Construction of the Republic wind project will bring 100 local jobs and several long-term operational jobs after construction. A job like that would allow workers like me to come home to their families after a hard day of work rather than being out of state all the time.

The Republic wind project would bring $18 million in county and township payments. Not too long ago there was a big tax increase to help support the Bloomville fire department.

Having an Apex project nearby would allow the emergency responders who work the project to be available to assist with nearby emergencies. Not to mention, more funds would be available for the local government to build our community departments and infrastructure.
