The Hendersonville Times-News recently ran a story about our fight against Duke Power and our ability to come together as a unified voice in the form of the Carolina Land Coalition. MountainTrue’s own Mark Stierwalt echoed this theme in his quote to the newspaper:
One of the goals of the group, said Mark Stierwalt of MountainTrue, is to maintain a unified community voice once the preferred route is chosen, since many of the community groups formed among specific neighborhoods in opposition to specific segments.
We’re gaining momentum, and with it, we can continue putting pressure on Duke Power to find an alternative to their “modernization” plans.
Not in my backyard, not in your backyard, not in OUR backyard!
