Maine DOT employees removed close to 200 yard signs protesting the Sun Edison and Everpower wind projects proposed for the Moosehead region. These signs, which read SAVE MOOSEHEAD SAY NO TO WIND were removed from private properties, including business properties. These signs were put up by members and supporters of the Moosehead Region Futures Committee. When MDOT employees were asked who ordered this, they said "Augusta". Some of the individuals removing the signs said they were personally against wind projects but were ordered to proceed. And by the way - VOTE NO ON QUESTION 1 signs placed right next to anti- wind signs were not removed - nor were some signs promoting a religious camp. Is this what America has it come to? Have our first amendment rights been taken away? Is free speech and the right to protest gone? Does the wind industry now control all of Augusta?
