Serving Whitman County since 1877

Support for Harvest Hills Wind Project

I am a fourth-generation farmer in Whitman County and am writing to express my support for the Harvest Hills Wind Project. I know that some people in our community are having a hard time with the change, which is why I want to make sure all voices are heard.

Farming is all about helping people. Our farm has provided food for thousands upon thousands of people through the years, and now we have the opportunity to provide for people in a new way. It is a really good feeling to be able to contribute to our community by providing the energy we need to live and be part of something bigger than ourselves. Turbines and agriculture can coexist on the land, and we will be able to continue our farming now and into the future. I know that my great-grandfather, who started this farm, would have felt proud. Harvest Hills will create hundreds of construction jobs and will also bring tens of millions of dollars into our community to support schools, roads, first responders, law enforcement, and more. Whitman County will prosper with this partnership.

The appearance of the wind turbines may take some getting used to, but they will bring so many benefits to our community. That is why I signed up. My hope is that our community can see the big picture so we can continue along a path of progress, production, and prosperity in the years to come.
