The view from Blackwell Road, where trees are beginning to be cut down for the Amazon Web Services data center the Warrenton Town Council approved last month.

In other words, the people of Warrenton's voice has not been heard and the town council approved Amazon to do whatever they want. Where is the oversight? Where are the permits? I'm sure if I decided to build a deck on the back of my house without a permit I'd be fined etc.

This is what happens when you get in bed with big corporations. Everyone I have talked to that live in Warrenton doesn't want this data center anywhere near town and I've lived here for over 20 years. I am sure there is money being thrown around the We the People don't know about.

I will not vote for anyone on this council again.
