Postcard Campaign Fights Vermont Yankee Future

07/14/10 6:06AM

The Vermont Public Interest Research Group is lobbying the candidates for governor to shut down the VT Yankee Nuclear Power plant.

On Tuesday, the advocacy group gathered over 2,000 postcards it collected from people around Vermont, and delivered them to the campaign headquarters of the six major-party candidates, imploring them to make clean energy a priority and to retire the plant when its license expires in 2012.

VPIRG says its campaign has already collected over 7,000 postcards from Vermonters who want the 38-year-old plant closed.
