NCCPAC Statement on Letter to Mid-Maine Chamber from Local Elected Officials

FARMINGTON: "No CMP Corridor would like to thank Senators Russell Black and Scott Cyrway, as well as Representative Dennis Keschl for publicly calling on the Mid-Maine Chamber of Commerce to allow both sides of the NECEC corridor debate to be presented to their membership," said Sandi Howard of No CMP Corridor.

"It's troubling that this group has chosen to put the will of two foreign corporations before that of more than 4,000 area residents who signed our petition last year to bring this issue to a statewide vote. The NECEC corridor would have a devastating impact on Maine's renewable energy and tourism industries, which is why it's so important for the Mid-Maine Chamber to allow our side to address their membership with equal time, rather than blindly taking sides. I sincerely hope that they decide to do the right thing."
