I am a person who loves Maine, pays hefty taxes and goes to the polls at every opportunity. Gov. LePage’s newest tactic of withholding $11.5 million from the Lands for Maine Future projects is an abomination.

How can he believe that he personally is allowed to constrict the will of people who voted for these allocations?

Agreements had been arranged long ago for important islands which were all set to be preserved, to keep nature trails open, preserve free hunting, fishing and recreation access for everyone.

Now he has put all that in jeopardy because of his own agenda.

I wish he could see that his stubborn attitude and inability to negotiate fairly will hurt our pristine wilderness that is the hallmark of Maine living and the reason so many people visit and choose to live here.
