Yesterday, Nov. 5, 2013, was voting day and here are the results for the Barnstable ballot:
SHUT DOWN PILGRIM
This has been an effort of Cape Downwinders:
To get the 15th Cape town to want to shut down Pilgrim Power Plant!
The Cape Downwinders meet on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of every month at Hyannis Library at 5pm.
And the 3rd Tuesday of every month at the Wellfleet Library at 7pm.
Last Spring all other 14 towns came on board, while Barnstable votes this time of year…so Cape DownWinders educated and pushed for this all summer and their efforts have proven to be successful.
Now Cape Downwinders and supporters can go to the Governor with all 15 towns’ voting records and put the information in his lap! This plus other pressures put on Entergy (owners of Pilgrim Nuke), we expect will turn the wheels to finally shut it down!
