No bullies in Wiscasset

Posted:  Monday, December 11, 2017 - 7:30am

Dear Editor:

I want to commend Ben Rines for delivering a strong message to the state at the last Board of Selectmen's meeting. MDOT may be bigger than Wiscasset, they may hold more cards, but they cannot just steamroll their way through town, ignoring our laws and our process.

Why does MDOT refuse to have an honest conversation with Wiscasset? Why are they so intent on rushing their project through when there may be better solutions for everyone? What are they afraid of? Aren't bullies usually afraid of something?

There have been reports that MDOT isn't telling us everything they know. I hope we’re about to learn some of what they aren't telling us on Dec. 12 at 7 p.m. at the Wiscasset Community Center when an independent traffic engineer, not connected with MDOT, will make a public presentation on his findings of what they’ve been telling us.
