People and governor deserve last word on wind  

Credit:  Maine Sunday Telegram, www.pressherald.com 6 August 2011 ~~

Gov. Paul LePage is on record as stating: “(Wind projects) are doing an awful lot of damage to our quality of life, our mountains . . . I don’t think it’s going to lower the cost of energy. I think in 10 years we’re going to be like Sweden and Denmark and we’re going to be swearing at ourselves.”

The official tally of testimony, including written and oral presentations at LURC’s hearings regarding the Bowers Mountain Wind project, are in: 32 of 379 (8.4 percent) favor the project; 349 of 379 (91 percent) oppose the project.

So now we’ll find out: Are we living in a democratic system? Does LURC answer to the governor and the citizens of Maine? Or will the propaganda, and targeted financial contributions, of an out-of-state developer run roughshod over the will of the people?
