“In my position as Mayor of Yabucoa, Puerto Rico, I strongly support the
current Board of Directors and management of Western Wind Energy Corp.
During the past three years, the current Board and management, led by
Jeff Ciachurski, have done a lot of good work to support the community
and people of Yabucoa.
It is important that the current Board and management continue to
complete this project. We are very concerned and uncomfortable with
outside forces trying to remove the current management and Board.
I would view this as very disruptive and unproductive and for us in
Yabucoa, we support the current Board and management led by Jeff
Angel S. Garcia de Jesus
