On Monday, July 16th, about 100 people gathered at Mt. Blue High School at a meeting to ask questions of Central Maine Power’s proposed Quebec-to-Massachusetts power line project. The meeting was organized by Sen. Tom Saviello and Wilton Town Manager Rhonda Irish.

A full article on the meeting can be read on the Sun Journal here.

We at GFDC would like to thank Sen. Saviello and Rhonda Irish for kicking off the discussion and giving residents a platform for involvement. It is always encouraging to see citizens get involved and speak out for what they believe in. We’re interested in CMP’s willingness to consider expansion of Broadband connectivity in the county and will continue to be a part of the conversation going forward.
