What Matters-Rep. Bob Steinburg and Elizabeth City Mayor Joe Peel-1 hour and 6 minutes

Mark speaks with Rep. Bob Steinburg (R-Pasquotank) about the Amazon Wind Farm, which is now fully operational with 104 turbines. The project has been a source of controversy in the Republican party with some conservatives opposing the taxpayer-funded incentives going to wind, solar and other forms of renewable energy. Another layer to the controversy is the tension between those who favor the wind farm and those who have objected such as Sen. Phil Berger (R-Rockingham), citing interference with a naval radar system near the wind farm. In that same vein is Mayor Joe Peel of Elizabeth City, join gin us for the Mayor Monday segment, a day late, to talk about the Amazon Wind Farm being in the area and the impact it is having in his city. Also Peel talks about the history of Elizabeth City and what are “must-do” things for visitors.
