Discuss issues with respect and dignity

To the editor:

I am writing as a Kennebunk taxpayer and Kennebunk Light and Power District ratepayer to express my support for the approach being taken by John Burrows and the Mousam Kennebunk River Alliance to the relicensing and dam removal issues.

Despite the emotions being expressed by the property owners abutting the Kesslen impoundment (now taking a turn toward Mr. Burrows personally) he and his organization are keeping their focus on the economic and environmental facts. This should be the centerpiece of the debate. Ours is a small town with great potential. This discussion needs to be conducted with respect and dignity – the decisions being made will be long lasting and impactful. They deserve clearheaded analysis. Bruce Read Arundel
