Oakwood Hills energy plant

As an Oakwood Hills resident, I take issue with village trustee Paul Smith’s assertion in the Northwest Herald’s Aug. 8 article that the majority of the people who are against the project are not from our village. Where in the world did he get this idea? It certainly wasn’t from the residents of Oakwood Hills.

This statement shows how much village officials are out of touch with and apathetic to the residents of Oakwood Hills. I don’t know who Mr. Smith represents, but it’s not the residents of Oakwood Hills. Mr. Smith is undeserving to represent the residents of Oakwood Hills. I request that he step down from his position effective immediately.
