Lamoine Crushes New Gravel Ordinance

Vote No handmadeWith voter turnout 15% higher than neighboring Ellsworth’s, Lamoine voters overwhelmingly rejected the Board of Selectmen’s proposed new Gravel Ordinance, 425 no to 185 yes, in Tuesday’s vote. This outcome was in spite of the theft of approximately 80% of Friends of Lamoine’s “Vote NO” signs last week by unknown vandals. In response, Lamoiners were undaunted, as this homemade sign and the vote display.

    Almost 28% of eligible Lamoine voters voted
    no. That is a statistical landslide…

    Clearly this vote will send a message to selectmen and administration that if they want to continue in their current roles, they must reassess the town’s relationship with gravel pit owners.

    Reassess is the key word.

    Strange how signage theft is being done by those that know they are on the wrong side of an issue that protects citizen’s rights over those that seek to destroy Maine.
