Wind farm developers have been targeting Logan County recently. The meeting below happened on 11/22. The video was taped from the Young Conservatives of Logan County Facebook page which has the entire video of the over 3 hour meeting. The part below happened very close to the end of the meeting. The Board was voting to approve yet another wind farm. The citizens did not want it. These turbines are a problem because they could interfere with doppler weather in Lincoln.
This video is important because it shows elder abuse and corruption by the Logan County State’s Attorney Brad Hauge and the Board Chair. Hauge’s advice is a BIG problem and should eliminate him from being appointed as a Circuit Court judge. He has applied to replace Judge Tom Funk who is retiring.
When the County Board originally voted it was a tie 5-5 which means the wind farm was not approved. The votes can be clearly heard, the citizens present heard all the votes.
The County Board member on the far right side is obviously elderly, his name is Robert Farmer. After the vote watch the Board member next to him, Janet Estill. She asks him if he meant to vote NO.
The Chair, Emily Davenport claims she didn’t hear the vote. Bedlam them breaks out between the citizens who heard him vote no and the County Board members who really want another wind farm. State’s Attorney Hauge is seen approaching Davenport several times.
The entire County Board did not re-vote the Wind Farm. Board member Farmer did not say he wanted to change his vote. He was pressured by other County Board members to change his vote. That is elder abuse. State’s Attorney Hauge allowed this to happen meaning he is unqualified to be a judge.
If you want better video see it on Facebook. The vote happens at 2:52:00 https://www.facebook.com/youngconservativesoflc

Judge Fellheimer needs to disquality Hauge now. This is his court phone number: 309-888-5254
The video is over 10 minutes long because that’s how long it took!
