  • WERU Special: East-West Highway/Corridor Controversy 5/31/12

    Host: Amy Browne
    Engineer: Joel Mann

    Program Topic: The East-West Highway/Corridor Controversy
    Key Discussion Points:
    a) What information is being withheld from the public, and why?
    b) What things that ARE known about the project are raising concerns?
    c) Who stands to benefit?
    d) Who stands to lose?

    Guests:

    Hillary Lister—she has followed the various incarnations of the East-West plans for the past decade, doing coverage for Maine Indymedia, and living in and growing up in the vicinity of the various proposed routes

    Diane Messer–she has attended all of the legislative hearings, offering testimony at them, and has studied the impacts of the E/W proposal on the community

    Organizer Chris Buchanan of “Defending Water for Life in Maine”, and journalist Lance Tapley, who has been covering this issue, also join us by phone.

    We also invited proposal’s most vocal proponent, Cianbo CEO Peter Vigue to either join us or send someone in his place today, but he declined to do so. We’ll feature excerpts from an interview we recorded with him in early May.

    Call In Program: Yes
