John Hall On Indian Point/Hilliary Clinton-Hedging Bets
First, Hilliary Clinton-today I got a phone call from one of Hilliary Clinton's staff members...at the first blush, this is a good thing one would assume...or is it? After explaining why I had called her office said mousy little Prissy Missy gave me the patented "Thank you for your call, and I'll pass your COMMENTS along to Hilliary Clinton". Uhhhh....excuse me you little gum chewing poorly paid Gold Digger looking for a K Street job...I don't want my comments passed along to Hilliary Clinton, as a constituent with CONCERNS about Indian Point, I want some ANSWERS. Let me ask you again, "Does Senator Clinton OPPOSE the relicensing of Indian Point, or is she in support of relicensing Indian Point? Simple question, to which this dim light bulb replied...Senator Clinton has not taken a position on that, if she does, you can read about it on her WEBPAGE...at this point, I lost my temper. So, will ask both Senator Clinton, and Congressman John Hall here in this blog, to be followed by CERTIFIED MAIL....do you oppose the licensing of Indian Point, and are you prepared to stand with the citizens in the AFFECTED AREA in doing everything within your power to CLOSE SAID FAILING ENTERGY NUCLEAR FACILITY....further, are you prepared to work with citizens such as myself to petition the NRC for rule making that would force ALL NUCLEAR PLANTS to have a viable and working Emergency Plan, as well as the financial ability to make ALL CITIZENS 100 PERCENT financially WHOLE AFTER A MAJOR NUCLEAR INCIDENT.
John Hall's Press Release
Congressman-Elect John Hall
Democrat – NY 19
For Immediate Release
December 5, 2006
Congressman-Elect John Hall Objects to NRC’s Indian Point Ruling More importantly, do John Hall and Hilliary Clinton OPPOSE relicensing the facility. Stop the SMOKE SCREEN, answer the question.
WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman-Elect John Hall sharply criticized the Nuclear Regulatory Commission today for rejecting a petition by Westchester County Executive Andrew Spano to include safety concerns regarding evacuation plans and terrorism when considering Entergy Nuclear Northeast’s re-licensing application for the Indian Point power plants in Buchanan, NY.
Hall, who is in the nation’s capital to complete a congressional orientation program, said: “I strenuously object to the NRC’s decision and look forward to working with Westchester County Executive Andrew Spano and other elected officials in the region to discuss how to proceed with the issues surrounding the re-licensing of the Indian Point nuclear power plants.
“In the meantime, my first request to the NRC is that they table Entergy’s application for re-licensing Indian Point until the current leaks of radioactive strontium 90 and tritium have been located, stopped and contained, and the pool of radioactive material beneath the plant be removed before it seeps into the groundwater. This is the least Entergy can do to show that they are living up to their charter’s promise of ensuring public safety.” Get real John Hall, this cute chit does NOT WORK...further, you either completely OPPOSE the relicense of the facility, or you lied to us the voters. Are you going to GET TOUGH and weigh in heavily on this, OR NOT?
Recently, Entergy indicated that it would seek re-licensing of Indian Point through 2035.
Congressman-Elect Hall has called for the Indian Point facility to be converted into a research and development center for safe, domestic, renewable forms of alternative energy.
