Local members and NYSLOF gathered at the Stony Point Center for a public hearing seeking public comment about the proposed Champlain Hudson Power Express (CHPE) power line and the plans to lay it overland through Stony Point.
Dean Tamburri, field representative for AFL-CIO local 17, and Steven Reich, business manager for Local 754, spoke in favor of the project, stating that TDI has promised to hire at least 100 or more local construction workers. Reich put it plainly: “We need to put men to work, and all the plans for American power plants have stalled.”
