Your Nov. 16 editorial ("Speak Up, Guys") condemning several Imperial County supervisors for not passing a motion to oppose two power plants being built in Mexicali was short on fact and long on exaggeration.
Your newspaper has known since February that Sempra Energy Resources is voluntarily building our power plant to meet California's strict air-emissions standards.
Our plant's emissions are below EPA significant impact levels. Yet you continue to misrepresent the Sempra Energy plant as a health hazard to Imperial County.
In the past nine months, three reporters from the Imperial Valley Press have heard details on how the Sempra power plant is using the most advanced environmental controls available. Yet you conveniently have ignored these facts in your editorial.
