Protect our townspeople  

Credit:  Bangor Daily News, bangordailynews.com ~~

The Frankfort selectmen’s actions should be another red flag for our town and other towns in Maine in regard to companies such as Eolian. Their goal is to sell us their product and ensure their profit. Eolian is highly motivated to conduct their research. It is a race for time against any potential future restrictions voted in by the town.

Our selectmen sold out. Eolian CEO Jack Kenworthy reports the actions and wishes of the people are unlawful and unconstitutional. Eolian is saying they are intending to work in a “collaborative and transparent way with the town.” They have an odd definition of these terms.

They essentially have to say they are working collaboratively with us. Surely they won’t say “we stand to profit hugely off your town and our intention is implement our plan regardless of your health, property values and rural life.”

Raising questions about large, industrial wind companies isn’t anti-wind. We should be interested in the growing concerns across the nation and abroad that suggest significant problems with these companies. Getting our information from the salesman is risky. Any business that can negatively impact the investments and health of others should not be allowed to have an open-door policy. We need to view the cost and benefits just like they do.

Frankfort residents stand up and protect all of our townspeople and landowners. Selectman, I have lost faith in your ability to represent us and to treat this situation without bias.
