  1. Anybody out there besides me, that is outraged about smart meters. I’m in Cincinnati Ohio. If so leave contact number… Everybody that I talk to is clueless….

  2. Julie,
    People I speak to about smart meters are not educated in the health problems involved and use of taxpayer money to install these “smart meters.” I wasn’t aware myself until I heard Dr. Debra Greene speak and get on her email list.
    Do you have a group that I can join? I’ve written our senators about this issue as well as many others. But being out there with signs would bring attention to the issue.
