We were saddened today to see a Letter to the Editor (see below) to the Concord Monitor from an 8-year-old boy who apparently has been told that his school teacher will lose his home if The Northern Pass project is completed.
It’s not true.
The project as proposed will use an existing right of way in the area, with no expansion. The teacher’s home is not threatened.
It is truly unfortunate that a youngster is experiencing anxiousness based on inaccurate information.
Any landowner with questions regarding an existing right of way and their property is encouraged to contact at “info @ northernpass dot us” or by calling 1-800-286-7305 .
Text of Letter to the Editor:
Connor Raposo, Franklin
To Gov. John Lynch: My name is Connor. I am 8 years old and a student at Sant Bani School. I would like to speak to you about the Northern Pass Project. I think this is bad for New Hampshire because of what it will do to our land and trees. It could also kill the animals while clearing the way for the power lines.
I do not think it is right to take away people’s home or land. They work hard for it. My teacher Sam actually built his house, and it took him three years. I do not want him or anyone else to lose their homes, but Sam will if this project happens.
Please say no to the Northern Pass project.
