Vern Johnson, Keith Puntenney
Boone County farmers Keith Puntenney and Vern Johnson live on the route of the Dakota Access Pipeline and have sued over the abuse of eminent domain. They questioned US Senator Sherrod Brown, candidate for president, about the pipeline, water quality, and climate change. Keith says, “Senator Brown didn’t respond to our concerns. He’s a warmed-over Hilary Clinton look-alike who came to Iowa for a photo op and softball questions. He wasn’t really interested in getting our information.”
Vern and Keith made the news in Ohio and two Iowa TV stations.
