Other Side Alert: Governor LePage Press Release - Letter of Concern to FRA re: MLF Siting

We had the transom open above our front door to let in a little fresh air before the next load of snow arrives, and look what came over it.  Could it be that even the Governor reads Other Side?

No, actually it couldn’t, but we can hope, can’t we?  After all, we don’t charge for electronic subscriptions like some other media outlets we know.


For Immediate Release: Monday, Mar. 24

Governor LePage asks Federal Railroad Administration for review of MLF site in Brunswick

AUGUSTA – Governor Paul R. LePage has submitted a letter to the Federal Railroad Administration, requesting that FRA review the approval process for the Northern New England Passenger Rail Authority’s proposed maintenance and layover facility (MLF) in Brunswick.

“As Governor, I have made Maine's economy a top priority of my administration,” said Governor LePage. “I am committed to supporting projects that will stimulate economic growth, including the redevelopment of the former Brunswick Naval Air Station, which would benefit directly from alternative MLF siting in East Brunswick.”

The Governor said he has heard numerous concerns from local citizens about the MLF project. “In light of these concerns, I believe this process requires a significant and thorough review that ensures a rational, open, objective and transparent process for MLF siting,” he said.
