I am writing in response to the article about the residents of Lexington, Concord and Highland and their decision to oppose wind developments.
We have friends and family members who live there and we support them fully. These wind developments will greatly affect their quality of life and their real estate values and we feel their no votes – evidenced by the majority of residents signing petitions – should be heard.
We hope Gov. LePage will respect the votes of the residents in Lexington, Concord and Highland. We also hope the wind developers, Iberdrola and Highland Wind, will respect the will of these Mainers and go elsewhere.
