Spectra still leaving questions unanswered

Here’s how Spectra’s VP of Stakeholder Outreach Susan Waller actually implements her assertion quoted in the Valdosta Daily Times Tuesday.

“I want stakeholders to talk to us. They have to ask the questions so we can answer them,” Waller said. “Keep talking. Don’t shut down.”

Protest to FERC at the last Sabal Trail gas pipeline Open Houses



Valdosta, December 17,

Kissimmee Middle School
2410 Dyer Blvd.
Kissimmee, FL 34741
