Today we honor our hero Joseph H. Besade on the 15th anniversary of his death. He is Sadly missed and always remembered. Although he left us his work here has continued. On December 13th 2016 the Connecticut Supreme Court reversed a lower court decision on the Millstone nuclear power station Clean Water Act permit (a battle he spearheaded). This victory helped vindicate his tireless efforts 13 years after his passing. We know that this is only the beginning. We will continue to make great strides none of which would be possible without the many sacrifices made by Joe.
