Open Letter to the Governor Regarding NP

 

To the editor,

Dear Governor,

I am writing to express my sincere and heartfelt opposition to the proposed Northern Pass project.  As a lifelong and proud resident of the North Country, it is clear to me that it would be unwise to allow Northeast Utilities to scar our landscape so that their stockholders can profit from cheap energy from Canada.  The $7.5 million job fund is a pittance and an insult to those of us who call the North Country home.  Why do we want to ruin our land so that cheap energy can be sold to southern New England for the profit of a private CT based corporation?  I beg that you do everything in your power to prevent this project from coming to fruition.  The people of the North Country are counting on you.  If we allow this project to move forward then I fear that we have lost our NH way.  As others in the North Country have repeatedly said, if Northeast Utilities really wants to build this project then the answer is quite simple. Tell them to bury the lines!

Sincerely,

Sean Brungot
