We need someone like Robertson, who can think outside the box, for our representative. Although Rep. Reed has three years experience in the House, Robertson has more than 10 years working with the Republicans on the Tompkins County Legislature to accomplished great things, from the lowest unemployement rate in the state, to millions of private funds and grants to provide new residential facilities. Working with the opposite party, how unique! Her background is education, not a lawyer who made his living taking as a debt collector.

NRG can not compete on price by burning coal. This proposal would be even costlier. This plan is nothing but rhetoric in an effort to please everyone. Firing the plant with natural gas will allow NRG to generate power at a cost that is competitive on the open market and allow them to remain open.

If you believe Martha Robertson is bipartisan or has Republican support, you either don't live in Tompkins or just believe what Martha claims. She is a left wing activist whose big spend and tax policies (she recently got herself an $110,000 desk) leave anyone fiscally sound cold. She hates natural gas and her "solutions" prefer even coal over clean natural gas. The low unemployment rate in Tompkins is not her doing, Cornell University and Ithaca College keep employment stable here, but she has fought high paying energy jobs virulently. Tom Reed is far more representative of the people of the southern tier than this activist liberal.
