"The letters show written support level of approximately 80% in favor of the proposed rezone of AEHI's proposed nuclear site."
One would not be surprised if these numbers were correct, given that the company had explicitly asked its shareholders to write in to support AEHI. However going through all written testimony I count a very, very different result.
First lets count the opponents:
Among them is a group of people represented by law firm Holland & Hart. Their submission highlights some of the process and substantive issues in a very detailed manner. Represented are a total of more than 95 people:
H Hook LLC (1+)
Jeffrey and Debbie Weber (2)
Wylie Griffith and The Harrison Fund LLC (1+)
Neighbors for the Preservation of the Big and Little Willow Creek Community (1+)
People for Payette's Future (90+)
The number in parenthesis is the number of clients represented according to the document.
Then there is the Snake River Alliance which represents 100 people from Payette County and 1100 from Idaho. Finally we have 13 individual testimonies from:
Mac Joann Higby
This brings us to a total of 1208 individuals represented by written testimony including Snake River Alliance. Or 108 individuals if you assume that the Snake River Alliance does not legally represent their members in this matter.
Counting the supporters is very easy. They sent in almost exclusively very short emails along the lines of "great for the economy, the environment, count me in". Many of the supporters are known shareholders of the company. Count them all below, there are 66 of them.
So we have either 1208 : 66 with Snake River Alliance or 108 : 66 without. That's 95% against or 62% against based on plain number of represented people. Content wise judge for yourself. It's all here.
