There are 2 people that resigned from my Mothers Against Wind Turbines group, who are trying to run their own group, and are using my name. I am delighted that they are starting their own group, but disgusted, that they are trying to steal my name. My trademarked name. It is the name I came up with, while looking for a way to protect my son, as well as help other families protect their children. My story is on my blog, but surprisingly enough, they have put it on their mothersagainstturbines.com website, and refuse to remove it, even though I have asked them repeatedly, to do so. I want everyone to know, I do NOT endorse what these people are doing, I have no involvement with these people, and I am working toward resolving this issue.
I want to thank everyone who has been patient while this mess gets straightened out. Shellie Correia

It has been brought to my attention, that the people using my name, Mothers Against Wind Turbines, with inc stuck at the end of it, are soliciting the people of West Lincoln, for money. These are the same individuals that resigned, and then snuck around, behind my back, and took all of the money out of my MAWT account. Thousands of dollars that had been earned by myself, and some supporters from the community. They had NO right to do this. I would highly recommend that any donations toward the wind fight go directly to: http://swearontario.wix.com/swearontario Thank you, Shellie Correia
