In classical mythology, A Trojan priest of Apollo had a vision. He and his sons were killed by serpents when he foresaw the disaster for Troy in the Trojan horse left by the Greeks. This priest of Apollo’s final words was, “Beware of Greeks bearing gifts.”
This is a good lesson that may need to be applied today with the Eastern Shore Land Conservancy.
Many people have been asking questions of Delmarva Power / Pecpo with reference to MAPP, but as anyone been asking questions of the Eastern Shore Land Conservancy? Why are they getting a free ride on this issue? Is there a Western Shore Land Conservancy? Isn’t the farm land on the Western Shore in more danger of being lost to development than on the Eastern Shore? I am very sure of the correctness of this statement.
When the Dorchester County Commissioners wanted to have a meeting and speak with the Eastern Shore Land Conservancy to get a better idea whom they were dealing with, they were directed to the local Cambridge office. When the Dorchester Country Commissioners asked the names of the Board of Directors for the Eastern Shore Land Conservancy, they were refused this information.
1. What is ESLC hiding?
2. Why are the names of the Board of Directors for the Eastern Shore Land Conservancy, what should be public knowledge, such a big secret.
3. What does this “Save the Farm Land” environmental group have so much to hide that they don’t want this simplistic information known?
The ESLC has recently sent out letter to citizens of Dorchester soliciting money to hire lawyers to file suite against MAPP.
4. Why is it so important for the ESLC’s Board of Directors to stop the MAPP transmission line?
5. Why does the Board of Directors of ESLC feel that it is so important for the Delmarva Peninsula not to be able to replace the generated electric power that will soon be lost?
I have already stated that the current demand is greater than what will be left after the Coal and Oil electric generating power plants will be shut down in the Wilmington / Philadelphia area.
Now in conclusion, why is to so important to the Eastern Shore Land Conservancy that the Delmarva Peninsula, especially including Dorchester County, be subjected to the level of a third world country status with diminished available electric power?
So the real question that should be asked is, “What do these “Secret Board of Directors” of ESLC have to gain by opposing MAPP?!?”
