Vermont People Work at Vermont Yankee: Patty O'Donnell Comments

Patty O'Donnell
Vernon Selectboard Chair
 Former State Representative
Patty O'Donnell spoke from notes, not a written statement.  She stated that Vermont Yankee is a safe plant, and one of the top-rated in the country.  Workers wouldn't live near the plant and send their children to school near the plant if the plant were not safe.

O'Donnell also spoke against the demonizing of "Entergy Louisiana" as quoted in the Brattleboro Reformer. 

Patty O'Donnell, chairwoman of the Vernon Selectboard and former legislator, said Yankee is "a high-quality nuclear power plant ... one of the best in the country."

"This isn't Entergy Louisiana," said O'Donnell. "It's Entergy Vermont Yankee. Look around this room you'll see the faces of the people who run this plant. That's Vermont Yankee."


This is the eleventh in a series of posts which share statements made in favor of Vermont Yankee at the Public Service Board hearing on November 7, 2012.
