“I’m somewhat of a conservationist and I approve it. I have looked at this hard enough and I really believe it is great. I’m also a hunter. I’m on the mountains and I can’t see anything wrong with it.” – Jack Leffel, Botetourt County Board of Supervisors Chairman
“Wind power is about as natural as it gets … it’s renewable, unaltered. I call it God’s power.” – Jerry Fraley, who has agreed to lease his land to Apex Clean Energy for the project
“There is no mining, no fracking, no drilling.” – Sherry Crumley, former Board Member of Virginia’s Department of Game and Inland Fisheries
“It’s time now for Virginia to enter the modern age.” – Dan Crawford, Chairman of the Sierra Club’s Roanoke chapter, praising the board for its “pioneering work”
