Re: LNG Facilities Siting and Sears Island

Dear Governor Baldacci: It is with considerable puzzlement and disappointment that we are yet again writing to you (for the third time). Although we have received a form letter from Mr. Cole that he apparently sends to all interested parties, we have still had no direct response from you about your intentions for addressing:

1) the need for an open and comprehensive approach to siting of industrial energy facilities on Maine's coast, and

2) a long-range plan for Sears Island

Meanwhile, other groups have expressed interest in joining us in such a meeting with you. We do not know how to respond to them if you continue to ignore or reject our request. Please aftise us how you plan to proceed.
