Statistics don’t lie. Here’s the final tally after public comment on First Wind’s proposed development for the Downeast Lakes region of Maine: 34 supporting (9.1 percent), 337 against (90.1 percent) and 3 neutral (0.8 percent).

The Land Use Regulation Commission has scheduled deliberations for October and November. So now we find out: Do we live by democratic rule, or will the people of Maine be overridden by former governors and their sons, and out of state developers’ contributions to targeted groups, like the Sportsman’s Alliance of Maine, to buy their support?
