Letter: Thanks for supporting Question 3

I write on behalf of the Friends of Scarborough Marsh to give many thanks to voters who supported Question 3 during the recent election. Question 3 endorsed a $9.75 million bond issue that includes critical funding for the highly successful Land for Maine's Future program.

LMF works to permanently protect lands that have exceptional recreational or ecological value along with working lands for farms, forests, tourism, and working waterfronts. This award-winning program enjoys a broad coalition of support and has protected more than 500,000 acres of wildlife habitat, farmland and unique natural places throughout Maine. These include local spots like Broadturn Farm in Scarborough and Robinson Woods in Cape Elizabeth.

These goals can only be achieved with your support. Question 3 won overwhelmingly on Nov. 2 with almost 60 percent of the vote. The Friends of Scarborough Marsh thank you, and will continue to work with LMF and many others to protect and restore our natural resources.
