April 24th, 2012 -On Monday evening about 35 people gathered in the Ferndale Public Library to hear a program presented by Michigan Stop Smart Meters. Three speakers presented an overview of smart meters, the failed business case, the radiation hazards and the threat to privacy.
Speakers included Diana Ostermann, retired from a managerial career in the cell phone industry, Dr. Richard Meltzer with background in research methodology, and David Sheldon MBA with undergraduate degree in physics and economics.
Following the presentations there was a spirited discussion of what we can do as individuals and as a group to encourage a just resolution of the crisis through either regulatory action or new legislation. Individuals expressed an interest in attending future public meetings, networking with each other, and participating in possible future demonstrations or other activities to promote public awareness of this stealth technology.
