The interview on Whats Up NY23 is fascinating as the son of the head of the Jefferson County IDA parrots his dad's stinging rebuke of wind farms and the tax subsidies the IDA is trying to ladle on the Galloo Island project.
Jonathan Hirschey is son of Town of Cape Vincent Supervisor and IDA Chairman Urban Hirschey. The other day the senior Hirschey told the Jefferson Leadership Insititute that wind is an expensive, inefficient and intrusive energy source. Mr. Hirschey called PILOT tax abatements "Un-American."
Jonathan's doubles down on Big Wind in this interview.
The ironies are apparent.
