Letter: Beware the wind-sprawl lawyers

I question Karen Tilberg's bias for the Governor's Wind Power Task Force. I found Naiomi Schalit's articles to be well-researched and factual. I wonder if the Redington support was won by giving away other parts of the state for wind sprawl. Lincoln's zoning was not in need of review. Wind sprawl is prohibited in rural residential zones. It may be permitted in the industrial zone. With Bangor and Portland lawyers the wind-sprawl Taliban circumvented the zoning.

All towns be warned if wind sprawl developers visit armed with lawyers. Your rights are the next endangered species. The task force had no one interested in protecting the mountains and the Legislature was duped. A sad reflection on all.
