Oronoco Twp. files Petition to Intervene

Filed under:Hampton-Alma-LaCrosse — posted by admin on April 26, 2011 @ 4:27 pm


Oronoco Township has filed a Petition to Intervene in the CapX 2020 Hampton-LaCrosse routing docket, a Petition that hauntingly familiar:

Petition for Intervention – Oronoco Township

Compare it with the one I filed for NoCapX 2020 and United Citizens Action Network (U-CAN).  It’s nearly word-for-word identical, a cut and paste of  our February 23, 2010 Petition:

NoCapX 2020 & U-CAN Petition for Intervention


Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!  Charles Caleb Colton

Flattery is the best form of imitation!  George W. Bush

… whatever…

You’ll note that there’s a RED button on the Oronoco Township site that says “NoCapX 2020” and leads to their CapX page:

To be clear, there is no connection whatsoever between NoCapX 2020 and Oronoco Township.  NoCapX 2020 and U-CAN are long-term intervenors in FOUR (4) CapX 2020 dockets, and commentors in two more, represented by moi, Carol A. Overland.  Oronoco Twp. has just jumped on the train, and are represented by Rod Krass, the attorney who wrote the superb brief for many U-CAN members in their appeal of the MinnCan pipeline permit.
