In a recent op-ed on the Central Maine Power corridor (Maine Voices, Jan. 26), Orlando Delogu sought to disregard the majority of Mainers’ valid concerns about the significant harm that the CMP transmission line would have on our environment, people, national reputation and economy.

Delogu characterized the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ review of the project as sufficient – but what is sufficient? I was in that hearing room in Lewiston when over 300 people testified in fervent opposition to the proposal. The Corps, which held this hearing to acquire information for their decision, either ignored our concerns or had already come to a conclusion.
