Lohnes LTE: CMP corridor offers little to nothing for Maine

Kennebec Journal All this money that is being spent on the “no” vote on Question 1 is coming from out-of-state and Canadian advertisers. This swath being cut in the middle of Maine’s beautiful northern forest will only benefit Canadian and out-of-state interests. All the work to cut this swath of land and erect these transmission towers will be short lived. The results will last forever. Continue reading

Potter LTE: Don’t buy No on Question 1 ads

Kennebec Journal You may have observed the abundance of CMP television ads, costing millions of dollars, in support of the CMP corridor in western Maine.
