How you can help us stop ATC's Cardinal-Hickory Creek Transmission Line

HELP US FIGHT CARDINAL-HICKORY CREEK

Driftless Defenders needs on-going help to raise public awareness and we need to maintain pressure by constantly keeping the CHC issue in the public eye. You can help in the following ways:  

 

1.  Write a Letter to the Editor

It’s important to keep our opposition in the public eye.  We must continue to win in the “court of public opinion” as we enter the appeal process.  You can write one letter to send to multiple papers, especially to papers in Madison where the PSC and legislators are located.

A list of papers with addresses for LTE’s is here: LettersToEditorAddresses122619

 

2.  Contact legislators.
