GRAND LAKE STREAM, Maine — Gov. Paul LePage was mostly casual and off-the-record as he chatted with the finance industry elite gathered at Leen’s Lodge on Friday. But he did make brief remarks about First Wind’s efforts to build 27 wind turbines in Carroll Plantation and Kossuth Township.
A cohort of local guides and lodge owners gathered to present the governor with a commemorative oar to celebrate LePage’s support in their fight to prevent the wind-power company from building the windmills in view of Grand Lake Stream.
The turbines “would have a negative impact on the outdoor tourism, which is the lifeblood of this region,” said Kevin Gurrall, director of the Partnership for the Preservation of the Downeast Lakes Watershed, a local group organized to fight First Wind.
