Upside down

This board is controlled by three anti-winders. It has been obvious from the start that they are and it will be Rumfords downfall. These three,and we all know which three, have flashing neons on their foreheads "NOT OPEN FOR BUSINESS". Now that the mill has filed for Chapter 11 ,which some of us knew they did, what will this board do for internal restructuring? No doubt, nothing. Tax payers get ready. Those of you who voted for the three ,B-L and V thanks for nothing.
Use the DEP model and give this town a chance to grow. Work on a benefit package with wind companies that we could get instead of finding ways to keep them out. I guess B-L and V like sitting on their heads. And by the way Mr.Buccina you still owe me an apology for your arrogance during Irene. Just goes to show what kind of person you are.
