Cartwright LTE: CMP's scare tactics in trying get voters to support its electricity corridor are false

Penobscot Bay Pilot

I have something to say to Central Maine Power: Liar, liar, pants on fire.

CMP's scare tactics in trying get voters to support its electricity corridor are false, but it seems our for-profit utility has no shame. They warn of politicians becoming too powerful, and "retroactive laws" threatening our livelihoods. Neither of these issues have anything to do with CMP's corridor, and the Legislature already has the power to make retroactive laws, which in some cases make perfect sense.

What doesn't make sense is this environmentally-destructive swath cut through the north Maine woods in a project that makes money for CMP, but does nothing to reduce pollution. That's according to scientists who have studied the project.

Vote "YES" on Question 1 to halt this fiasco. Show CMP that Mainers won't be sold down the river with false claims.
