Filed By: Individual No Affiliation [Richard & Katherine A. Berry]

Accession No: 20100412-5000
Description: Comments of Richard & Katherine A. Berry in Docket(s)/Project(s) CP07-52 et al. Submission Date: 4/9/2010.

Summary: Comments state Gov. Baldacci has broken his word to remain personally uninvolved in the LNG issue. The comments also challenge the Governor to produce evidence that his position represents the opinion of all Mainers, since LNG has previously been rejected all along the Maine coast. They also describe several reasons why additional LNG infrastructure is inappropriate, and unnecessary.

Filed By: Individual No Affiliation [Brian William Flynn]
Filed Date: 4/12/2010
Accession No: 20100412-5003
Description: Copy of Brian William Flynn's Letter to Governor Baldacci of Maine under CP07-52 et. al..

Summary: Comments indicate Governor Baldacci is attempting to use political influence to manipulate FERC's regulatory process. Also, the State of Maine has neglected to study the negative health and medical impacts, and related costs, that any LNG import terminal would have on the Passamaquoddy Bay region. The comments also point to Gov. Baldacci's misleading and distorted statements to FERC, and that Downeast LNG, not FERC, has been the cause of delays to releasing the Final EIS.

Accession No: 20100413-0066
Description: Comments of Edith C Bishop re the Downeast LNG and Calais LNG under CP07-52.

Summary: Ms. Bishop points out to Gov. Baldacci that he has broken promise, that he would not become personally involved in the LNG issue and would allow the federal and state permitting process to work.

Filed By: INDIVIDUAL [Joseph and Lea Sullivan]
Filed Date: 4/19/2010
Accession No: 20100419-0010
Description: Correspondence from Joseph and Lea Sullivan re the Downeast LNG Terminal and Calais LNG under CP07-52 and CP10-32.

Summary: The Sullivans remind Governor Baldacci he has violated his promise to keep uninvolved in the LNG permitting process. They also indicate he does not represent the citizenry of Maine regarding LNG, as evidenced by all the previous LNG proposals being kicked out of the rest of the state by citizen opposition.

They also tell Baldacci that North America is drowning in natural gas, including gas discoveries in southwest New Brunswick, meaning no LNG import infrastructure is necessary in Maine.

Further, the US Coast Guard has already indicated it will deny entry to Passamaquoddy Bay-destined LNG carriers. They also enumerate other valid reasons why the proposed LNG project would harm the local area.

Filed Date: 4/21/2010
Accession No: 20100421-0016
Description: Correspondence from Town of St. Andrews to Governor John Baldacci re the LNG in Passamaquoddy Bay under CP10-32 et al.

Summary: The Town of St. Andrews Mayor tells Governor Baldacci of the numerous negative impacts LNG would have on the community. The Mayor compares St. Andrews to Maine resort communities Camden, Rockport, and Kennebunkport, and all of these communities' reliance on natural attributes of the waterway for supporting local economies. He tells Baldacci of the potential harm to citizens the Calais LNG project would bring, and the lack of area emergency response capability. He points out that Maine advocating subjecting civilians to such hazards is unneighborly.
