Liz Caruso, a Connecticut import and candidate for congress in the second district, is yet another politician aiming to secure a cushy alternative energy position after successfully hoodwinking Maine citizens into rejecting a tremendous opportunity to boost electricity supply and lower electricity costs with a very insignificant downside.
For certain, she was able to rile up a stink against CMP, enough so that the consequences led to people facing the burden of an eighty per cent increase in the cost of electricity supply.
Perhaps, voters were never afforded an explanation of the economics behind energy acquisitions, i.e., which resources provide the best hedge in a politically driven, energy price war that leaves them unable to pay their monthly electricity bills.
Perhaps Liz Caruso is so cozy with energy giants like NextEra, she plans to arrive in D.C, initially, as an unpaid lobbyist for the wind, solar and battery storage industries which will eventually jettison her into an immensely lucrative career.
Trusting in someone's judgement that cripples the household budgets of so many Mainers, in my opinion, is cruel and insane.
Liz Caruso could just be insanely greedy, off to make quick bucks off the backs of the Maine workers and retirees.
We have seen this scenario played out too many times in Maine politics.
