Good to see former EUT Co-Chair Stacey Fitts working for the wind industry he helped while in the EUT. He was also a member of both of Governor Baldacci's wind task forces. And of course heinous expedited wind law creator Baldacci was made vice chair of Avangrid, the nation's second largest wind company in December 2015. Nothing here to see people.....just move along.
Co-Chair Fitts was quoted in the February 7, 2011 Sun-Journal as saying "Everyone wants to find the conflict, the snake in the grass. But every legislator in the building is conflicted if you were to take that same standard and apply it to everyone else. It’s the nature of being part-time legislators."
“It’s mostly fiberglass. They have a spar that runs through the middle as the main beam support, but they just float on the wind,” says Stacey Fitts, who manages the Bingham Wind Plantation and other assets held by Novatus, a J.P. Morgan affiliate that’s one of many investors to pick up the pieces after the nation’s biggest renewable energy company, Sun Edison, went bankrupt last year.

Stacey Fitts' Boasting Employer When He Was on the EUT
Why is it that Rep Stacey Fitts can be one of the biggest wind cheerleaders in the state, making decisions on wind and shaping legislation - all of which will benefit his employer, Kleinschmidt Associates. Look what they ran on their website up until recently. No shame whatsoever.
