Rep. Delahunt, from day one an opponent of the wind farm, has noticed Massachusetts voters want Cape Wind’s project built by a stunning 7 to 1 majority. Worried that so many disagree with his Neolithic mindset, he has undertaken a big PR campaign to sound as though he is pro-wind, even as he continues to fight to kill this much studied, much needed proposal.
His plan, which lacks structure or detail, advocates multi-layered political opportunities to prevent progress. He touts it as having essential local input. Does he consider the potential of Alaskan and Hawaiian legislators forcing Cape Codders to pay ever-increasing electric bills to be a demonstration of local control?
We wanted governmental transparency, but we are being served up a transparent political maneuver. It is insulting that the congressman thinks we can’t see through his subterfuge.
