Stop the Northern Pass Power Line
Operation Walk The Line
February 14, 2013
Hon. David Borden
Science Technology Energy Committee

Dear Chairman Borden:
I would like to speak in support of HB 580 on February 19th at 1:00 P.M. I will fill out the speaker card. If there is any other requirement for speaking, please let me know.
I have been a leading opponent of the Northern Pass proposal since 2011 and have walked across a good part of the North Country as part of “Operation Walk the Line” to dramatize opposition to the proposed power line. While I respect that reasonable people can differ over Northern Pass, my research, my experience and my strong support for the preservation of New Hampshire’s forests and environment lead me to be a committed opponent of the project. That’s why HB 580’s moratorium offers time for a reasoned debate and discussion.
Northeast Utilities recognizes me as the de facto leader of the anti-Northern Pass movement and regularly monitors my activity, as well as having created a cartoon – since removed from the Internet – spoofing my efforts to block the project. So I command not only the expertise but the respect to address the proposed law.
HB 580 obviously concerns Northern Pass.
I look forward to meeting you and making my presentation next week.
