Time for a pro-people wind ordinance
To the Editor:
I would like to thank all those who supported me in my bid for a seat on the Dixfield select board, it’s really humbling.
I can’t tell you how much I appreciated the time and effort of you all! The cause to bring efficiency, financial responsibility, transparency, accountability, and the voice back to the people, to allow once again public comment at selectmen meetings, so that the selectmen can hear the voice of the people.
It must be hard for our select board to do the will of the people wen they don’t want to hear the voice of the people. This noble cause is not lost!
I congratulate Norine Clarke on her victory. I hope she will try to do what is best for the people of Dixfield and put her own personal pro-wind agenda aside. As far as I can see, there was a clear answer to the vote on wind power; a 29 person victory is very clear. The town is split 50-50 on this issue.
It is time, as I have said all along, that this town writes a pro-people wind ordinance, one that doesn’t purport to be pro- or anti-wind. An ordinance that purports to be pro-wind is unfair and bias just as well an anti-wind ordinance would be.
What we people expect from our town government is fair unbiased representation! See you at the next vote on the wind ordinance. We will demand to be protected and I hope that certain members of the select board will understand that protecting our citizens is what they call anti-wind.
