Why was Justin Alfond lurking in the back of the AGRICULTURAL Committee all day yesterday?

Justin Alfond was lurking in the back of the AGRICULTURE Committee all day...even after 5 pm. Why? Because his district in Portland has Agriculture issues???  No. 
To pressure his D members to vote against LD 828, citizens' rights.

Final vote: all the Ds voted against.

CORRECTION: Rep. Ralph Chapman, a Democrat, voted with us. One Republican, Rep. Don Marean, voted against us.

 

Meanwhile: 

May 13, 2015

It's now over four months since the Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting ratted out Justin Alfond in the following article and not a peep from the Maine media.

Think of all the far less important news coverage you see every day and ask yourself the question - why does the Justin Alfond wind industry story not interest the press?

Also, be sure to at least skim some of the 171 pages of love notes between Alfond and his windy paramours. The links to these are below:

Justin Alfond - Three Weeks After the First Wind Story

Feb 1, 2015, Super Bowl Sunday - Three Weeks Now: Has anyone heard a peep about the Justin Alfond wind story in the press since Ms. Schalit's article?

Step Down Senator.

Browne, First Wind’s lawyer, sent Alfond suggested text for an amendment. Alfond ultimately adopted it,changing nothing in the 248 words she supplied.

Lexington Township resident Michka reflected on how hard it has been for citizens like him to gain traction in the statehouse.

Michka said, “I will tell you one thing that a legislator said to me, a Democratic legislator. He told me, ‘We don’t want you here. We say we do, we act like we do and we welcome you, but in truth we don’t want you here. In truth you clog up the works and make us feel bad. We don’t analyze bills so much as we rationalize.’

“If democracy is about citizens,” said Michka, “then this isn’t really democracy.”

it's just a tragedy how much deception and coverup goes on here while the destruction is perceived as a good thing- and even the exported energy is probably minuscule- when you see alternative energy statistics it is a JOKE how little wind contributes to the total grid-

benefit maine?     nope

Comment by Eric A. Tuttle on February 14, 2015 at 1:13pm

60% of energy produced in Maine is exported. A statement made at one of the EUT meetings. None of Maine's Wind is "NEEDED" by Maine. 

Comment by Dan McKay on February 14, 2015 at 1:12pm

Maybe we will see what is really underneath this love affair for wind.

Comment by Penny Gray on February 14, 2015 at 12:56pm

Perhaps our cronyism prone legislators will resign too?

Comment by Dan McKay on February 14, 2015 at 11:21am

As long as State Legislative actions keep the wind rally rolling along, the cashed-in constituency will continue to cash in, while ratepayers continue to cash out.

Hannah Pingree on the Maine expedited wind law

Hannah Pingree - Director of Maine's Office of Innovation and the Future

"Once the committee passed the wind energy bill on to the full House and Senate, lawmakers there didn’t even debate it. They passed it unanimously and with no discussion. House Majority Leader Hannah Pingree, a Democrat from North Haven, says legislators probably didn’t know how many turbines would be constructed in Maine."

Maine Center For Public Interest Reporting – Three Part Series: A CRITICAL LOOK AT MAINE’S WIND ACT

******** IF LINKS BELOW DON'T WORK, GOOGLE THEM*********

(excerpts) From Part 1 – On Maine’s Wind Law “Once the committee passed the wind energy bill on to the full House and Senate, lawmakers there didn’t even debate it. They passed it unanimously and with no discussion. House Majority Leader Hannah Pingree, a Democrat from North Haven, says legislators probably didn’t know how many turbines would be constructed in Maine if the law’s goals were met." . – Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting, August 2010 https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-power-bandwagon-hits-bumps-in-the-road-3/From Part 2 – On Wind and Oil Yet using wind energy doesn’t lower dependence on imported foreign oil. That’s because the majority of imported oil in Maine is used for heating and transportation. And switching our dependence from foreign oil to Maine-produced electricity isn’t likely to happen very soon, says Bartlett. “Right now, people can’t switch to electric cars and heating – if they did, we’d be in trouble.” So was one of the fundamental premises of the task force false, or at least misleading?" https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-swept-task-force-set-the-rules/From Part 3 – On Wind-Required New Transmission Lines Finally, the building of enormous, high-voltage transmission lines that the regional electricity system operator says are required to move substantial amounts of wind power to markets south of Maine was never even discussed by the task force – an omission that Mills said will come to haunt the state.“If you try to put 2,500 or 3,000 megawatts in northern or eastern Maine – oh, my god, try to build the transmission!” said Mills. “It’s not just the towers, it’s the lines – that’s when I begin to think that the goal is a little farfetched.” https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/flaws-in-bill-like-skating-with-dull-skates/

Sign up today and lend your voice and presence to the steadily rising tide that will soon sweep the scourge of useless and wretched turbines from our beloved Maine countryside. For many of us, our little pieces of paradise have been hard won. Did the carpetbaggers think they could simply steal them from us?

We have the facts on our side. We have the truth on our side. All we need now is YOU.
