Letter: Not-so-smart electric meters

Local residents continue to raise awareness on “smart meters” in their local communities.

Big thanks to Marilyn Shettel for sponsoring the documentary “Take Back Your Power” at the Glenwood Springs Public Library on Thursday. Residents from upvalley and downvalley attended the film, concerning dangers of “smart electrical meters” currently being installed or already in place on homes and businesses. I was deeply moved by the 84-year-old New Castle resident who rode the public bus to attend this event and risked missing the last return bus of the evening. We need more concerned residents like this! Please look for the next free public showing of this documentary in your local newspaper. Or better yet, get the DVD on loan from your public library.
