Promoting Democratic Values in Hancock County, Maine.

Upcoming: September Meeting

Pine Tree Power:
Good or Bad for Maine?

A Panel Discussion

Thursday, September 21, 7:00–8:30 PM
Via Zoom

The most controversial of the eight referendum questions on this November’s ballot is Question 3, which proposes replacing CMP and Versant with a consumer-owned utility. While we’ve all been exposed to the frequent and long-running ads opposed to this referendum, information in support has been less visible, and it seems especially challenging to find balanced information on the issue.

This month, HCDC presents a panel discussion on Question 3 to help uncover the facts. Without taking sides ourselves, we will offer our panelists an opportunity to present their case in a clear and comprehensive manner.

Al Cleveland from Pine Tree Power will explain why we should vote Yes. Judy Long, representing Versant Power, will present the opposition case. William Harwood will present on behalf of the impartial Maine Office of the Public Advocate, which is working to help voters make informed decisions when they vote on this issue.  

We invite you to submit questions ahead of time by emailing chair@hancockdems.org.

Pre-registration required no later than noon the day before the program. You will receive a unique link you will need to use to join the meeting.
