Maine Attorney General Janet Mills Refuses to Make Wind Companies Sign a Code of Conduct as Was Required by the NY State Attorney General
Let's not forget what NY State Governor-elect Andrew Cuomo thinks of First Wind. As Attorney General, Andrew Cuomo launched an investigation of First Wind that is ongoing. Among Cuomo's concerns - "whether improper benefits were given to public officials to influence their actions". (BRIBERY)
The NY Attorney General also made First Wind sign a code of conduct.
Unfortunately, Maine's Attorney General, Janet Mills refused to investigate complaints from Maine citizens or make then sign a code of conduct. I guess Ms. Mills feels that that those lines of demarcation that Rand-McNally places on its maps to indicate state boundaries are all that's needed to keep First Wind from transporting any of its NY behaviors into Maine.
And let's not forget that former U.S. Congressman Erica Massa (D-NY) called them a company with a business model of LIE, CHEAT and CORRUPT. See attached pdf of Represntative Massa's letter to the President. Just click on the following green link.
It can also be pointed out that Attorney General Mills found it perfectly acceptable that a PUC Commissioner who greased the skids for CMP's $1.5 billion upgrade took stock options worth over $ 1 million from First Wind while still working at the PUC, prior to joining First Wind as their director of... DRUMROLL... TRANSMISSION.
