A Town “Divided”?

Searsport: A community divided by a tank

“Tanguay said that her group recently has been trying to get the word out about the municipal election and annual town meeting. People have been making phone calls, going door-to-door and canvassing the community.

‘People understand that even if they may decide in the end that the tank is a good thing, there’s a ton of concern,’ Tanguay said.

But Roz Elliott of DCP Midstream said that her company has been working hard to answer questions from residents and also to encourage voters to turn down the moratorium. Company canvassers also have been going door-to-door for the last couple of months to initiate a dialogue with residents.

‘We’ve seen a lot of people say, ‘oh, I get it,’’ Elliott said. ‘People genuinely want the opportunities, the property values. It really means the world to them. There’s a lot of hope out there.’

Voters will elect two selectmen, an RSU 20 director and nine members of the budget advisory committee in the municipal election that begins at 8 a.m. Tuesday, March 6, at the Searsport Public Safety Building.”
