“The people of Monmouth County have been unified in their opposition to the construction of these giant, obtrusive power transmission lines that it has now been demonstrated that we do not need.
“I applaud the thousands of people who joined together to create R.A.G.E. (Residents Against Giant Electric) to express their continued opposition over so many years. Theirs was a truly incredible grass-roots effort that won the debate in the minds of the public and ultimately, critically, that of Judge Cookson, who was charged with the deep-dive assessment of the proposal.
“The BPU must abide by the voice of the public and the conclusions reached by the judge and affirm that this project is rejected. There is no other choice.
“It’s time for the BPU to do the right thing, to listen to the concerns of Monmouth County residents, and to vote ‘no’ on the Monmouth County Reliability Project.”
