Crow Wing Power Accountability Group creates petition

The Crow Wing Power Accountability Group has a petition requesting the CWP board of directors to share the membership (38,000 members) list with contact information.

The group asks for this list so it can move forward with a recall election of the board members and the CEO, as the CWP rules allow. The group has secured members who have agreed to sign the petition to be presented to the board; however, the group is giving members another opportunity to sign the petition before presenting it.

Signatures can be added by emailing: To be added, put "petition" in the subject line, fill out your name(s), address, phone number and email address.

The Crow Wing Power Accountability group is funded through donations, which can be made through the group's website or Facebook page.
