Opinion: Don't let Public Service Board be a pipeline grinch

’Twas the night before Christmas when decisions were made.

Gas companies a marching, easements soon paid.

Folks from Middlebury, Shoreham, Cornwall and more

Rise up and resist for all that it’s for.

 

Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus.

Or is there?

And do we forfeit our historic values of independence, self-reliance

and resilience by believing in such things?

 

Shoreham could simply say no thanks; or thank you, but no.

We could be self-reliant on solar, biomass and more.

Resilient in job creations and housing innovations.

We could be independent! We could be Shoreham Strong!

 

So when visions of sugarplums dance in your head,

remember these values from whom you’ve been bred.

Will your land and your rights be taken away?

Not so, Sir. No, Sir, no, Sir! Good Day!!
