Amazon pipe dream

Share or Comment

To the Editor;
Maine should go after Amazon to build their new headquarters here. Why? Because a massive, modern building would look so much better than a 145-mile transmission line that would supposedly create temporary jobs and destroy acres of forest. Amazon would create permanent jobs for those who need it right here in Maine. It would undoubtedly keep more of our best and brightest in the state — and potentially get thousands more to move here. I’m sure it’s just a pipe dream, but this is something that Maine could benefit from more than a transmission line.
