Clear the calendar and attend dam meeting

To the editor:

On Jan. 17 at 6:30 p.m. in town hall, a meeting between selectmen and Kennebunk Light and Power District will begin the process of collaboration regarding the future of three Mousam River dams.

Back on Nov. 8, more than 5,000 Kennebunk residents voted that they wished to keep the dams in place and continue generation.

That vote did not end the process, but opened the door for this collaboration to now go forward.

Most of us have gotten caught up in all the details of our busy lives. It’s hard to keep up with all the information and hard to go to nighttime meetings. But if you want to be informed, if you want your vote to be implemented, it is imperative that you attend this meeting and continue to follow the issue in the papers, on social media and with Save the Mousam-Keep Our Dams.

Please clear your calendar and plan on attending this meeting. The selectmen need to see your continuing interest. Please invite your family, friends and neighbors to attend Jan. 17 at town hall.

We look forward to seeing you there. Thank you.

Donna Teague
