As far as I’m concerned, it’s ok to be oposed to the project, but you damn well better have one credible fact-based reason to be opposed. Such was not, and is not, the case with Reilly. It was obvious that the only reason he opposed the project was because Sen. Kennedy, and the majority of elected officials down here opposed it. There’s no courage or wisdom there, and certainly no vision for the future.
Patrick, on the other hand, after talking with all sides, and learning all about the project, concluded, even though he knew it would ruffle the feathers of the politically connected down here, that the project should proceed.
By way of further background and perspective, I’m a 25-year ferry boat captain on Nantucket Sound.
And by the way, a solid “Majority” of Massachusetts voters do understand the need to develop renewable energy resources, and support the Cape Wind project.
