A "yes" vote for the Rumford wind ordinance
To the Editor:
On Nov. 8, please support the Board of Select Persons by voting “yes” on the Rumford wind ordinance.
It can’t be said enough that this isn’t a vote for or against wind; but rather a vote on how to control the development of it. This is about local issues needing local answers.
I have attended many of the meetings and watched the board take the time to consider piles of factual information and develop a document that will benefit our Town and its Citizens. Investigate Vinalhaven and you will see that letting the state take total control has left them with many problems and very few answers.
Many towns in Maine have developed and passed more protective standards than those from the State; let’s add Rumford to that list. Please Vote “yes” on the Rumford wind ordinance.
