Meet Elmer Underwood.
He’s a farmer in Indian Valley, a rural mountain community in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Southwestern Virginia.
Speaking at a public hearing on proposed wind turbines in Floyd County, Virginia, Underwood let the board of supervisors know just how he felt about the government coming onto his land to impose its will.
It’s not the first time Underwood has told off county officials. At a hearing on a proposed tax increase two years ago Underwood told supervisors that “I have truck outside with five rails, tar and feathers and I think I know how to put them to good use.”
When it comes to citizen frustration, is Underwood the exception or the rule?
