Canton, Carthage and Dixfield, along with Roxbury, are going to be a discredit to our "scenic" River Valley.
Governors Baldacci and King saw money made before our wilderness is saved. If anybody could get inside this commercial wind industry and uncover the scams of government mandates and subsidies, people would be red-faced in shame.
Carthage town fathers led a special town meeting with no regard for the handicapped and I believe vital information was withheld from voters.
The act of persons counting votes, with a stake in vote turnout, I think was wrong.
The wind moratorium vote in Carthage was 42-48, a close vote.
Why don’t the citizens of Carthage petition for another vote?
Canton had a special town meeting on a wind ordinance for the town. I don't think it was right that a long-time select person moved the question at this meeting (resulting in a 37-24 vote defeating the proposal for moratorium).
So why don’t the citizens of Canton petition for another vote?
Dixfield need a moratorium. Once the Department of Environmental Protection accepts the application, home rules do not apply any more.
