Who’s paying for all these costly adverts urging Mainers to vote “no” on Query 3? And why is it price a lot to them? Comply with the cash!
The expensive adverts are being paid for by buyers like ENMAX, a personal company whose sole shareholder is town of Calgary (Canada). Calgary’s Metropolis Council acts within the capability of shareholder on behalf of the residents of Calgary.
Meaning our electrical grid goes to be managed by politicians whether or not Query 3 passes or not. The distinction is that if it passes, they are going to be Maine politicians, and Mainers can have the ability to vote them out of workplace in the event that they do a awful job. What would we do if our grid was managed by overseas politicians they usually do a awful job?
And make no mistake about price will increase! To overseas firms, it seems our electrical grid is an funding: a money cow for his or her stockholders. To Maine, the grid can be a public utility. It might belong to the individuals of Maine and exist for the only real function of serving the general public curiosity.
