Cape Representative’s Statement on the Patrick agreement with NSTAR
By David T. Vieira
This seems like extortion to me. I don’t appreciate the Governor playing Chicago-style politics with the future of Cape Cod and the Islands. If NStar wanted to purchase CapeWind power, NStar has always been free to make such a purchase. The fact the Governor held the NStar merger hostage to the CapeWind power purchase just doesn’t pass the smell test.
These types of backroom deals are exactly what enrage taxpayers and should no longer be accepted.
