WILLOUGHBY MAYOR TALKING POINTS WELCOME&INTRODUCTION
Welcome to our new Duke Energy Plant Press Briefing. We are pleasured to welcome our distinguished guests, outstanding reporters from local and national media, parents, potential employees and others. In n the next few minutes, I will introduce the plan for a new Duke Energy nuclear power plant. Then we will discuss safety concerns among nuclear power. My Name is Honorable Amber Taylor, the mayor of Willoughby.
INTRODUCE DUKE ENEERGY PLANT PLAN
The Duke Energy nuclear power plant is a new plant that gains heat from nuclear power to produce electricity. After working with experts for six months, I’m pleased to officially announce that we have decided to build this new nuclear power plant right here in Willoughby, which will bring many benefits to our city.
So what does this mean for our community? I’d like to talk to you about the details.
INTRODUCE THE BENEFITS OF DUKE ENERGY PLANT
First, as many of you already know, nuclear is a clean and green power that emits far less carbon dioxide and sulfur than coal. It is the best environmental-friendly power choice.
Second, this new plant can create at least 1,000 new jobs in our city. These jobs range from nuclear engineers to entry-level workers. After months of the recession and watching our manufacturing jobs dry up, I know that’s a huge relief to me and to all of you. And it’s not only jobs inside the plant that will be created. I expect many new local businesses will set up here due to the construction and operation of Duke Energy Plant. Our plan can bring great potential for a new economic boom to Willoughby.
NUCLEAR POWER IS SAFER THAN YOU THINK
Now, I know that many people are concerned with the issues related
