It takes some gall to advertise Northern Pass jobs when the project has yet to be approved

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,

I was very disturbed and angry to find an ad in my local paper advertising job fairs put on by the Northern Pass Project. These job fairs will be held in Whitefield and Concord. The ad states “Come Learn About Job Opportunities Available to You with Northern Pass.” Well my question to Northern Pass is: How can job fairs be scheduled when the project has not even been approved by the state of New Hampshire?

This project has been before the Site Evaluation Committee for several months now. Many have testified, including myself, as to why this project should not be approved. The Site Evaluation Committee has until the end of February 2018 to make the decision whether to approve the project or not. This ad appears as if the SEC has already made its decision. Does NP know something the public does not? PEOPLE OF NEW HAMPSHIRE, A DECISION ON Northern Pass HAS NOT YET BEEN MADE! This ad just goes to show how brazen Northern Pass has been throughout this entire project.

I feel bad to anyone who attends these fairs with the anticipation of getting a job because NO DECISION HAS YET BEEN MADE. I ask all of you who may read this letter to please keep your fingers, eyes, toes crossed, pray, whatever you have to do so this project does not get approved. For if it does, there will be a big swath of mono-poles and steel lattice towers through the middle of our beautiful state and this beauty will be gone forever!
